Why you should try it:
Nestled against the cool Central Coast’s Santa Lucia Mountains,the Arroyo Seco
AVA claims one of California’s longest grape-growing seasons.Chardonnay grapes
can take their time ripening, and Arroyo Seco’s alluvial, gravelly and sandy loam
soils, coupled with cool breezes from Monterey Bay, offer optimal growing
conditions for it. This results in the slow, steady development of pure fruit
balanced by natural acidity.
