Zephyr Chardonnay

Imagine a vineyard staring at a valley filled with coastal fog. Redwood trees whip around as the cool ocean air slides across this land. Here at Zephyr, Chardonnay ripens slowly, bringing forth the savory flavors you often find in our mountain wines from Santa Cruz, but with a clear, linear freshness that reminds you of its origins. Farmed with meticulous care by our good friend Greg Adams for the past 18 years allows us to manage each row with precision to grow optimized grapes expressing the purity of the site.

2021 Tasting Note - John Raytek
This is a punishing, marginal place to grow grapes. In the glass, a brilliant white-gold color gives way to an aroma of lemon oil, underripe stone fruit, and ocean spray. The wind and the cold at the site can be felt in the mouth, where thick-skinned berries have given phenolic heft to the wine. A nervy vein of freshness lifts the whole experience.
