Metz Road Monterey Chardonnay 2019
This premium quality Chardonnay is a lavish wine, full of character and complexity. It is outstanding with delicate notes of citrus, crisp nectarine, toasted oak and honeysuckle on the nose. Its medium-body is balanced beautifully by crisp acidity and a creamy stone fruit, vanilla finish.
The philosophy behind Metz Road is simple: to craft a single-vineyard wine that exemplifies the best of Monterey, using sustainable farming practices and innovative winemaking techniques. Grapes are hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and hand-sorted, then the resulting wine is aged in 100% French oak.
Monterey County is a great region to familiarise yourself with if you want to discover unparalleled expressions of Californian Chardonnay. The morning fog and strong winds rolling off Monterey Bay provide the ideal conditions for producing cool-climate Chardonnay.
