"Deep golden yellow color. Aromas of buttery praline and spicy caramel apples with a soft, silky dry-yet-fruity medium body and a relaxed pineapple cake and orange chiffon finish. A sensuous, satisfying chardonnay."
"Our version of Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay is decidedly elegant, offering deep concentrated layers of apricot, ripe pear, and pineapple, with soft oak flavors and a hint of clove. The creamy, lingering butterscotch finish, coupled with firm natural acidity, will invite you back for continued enjoyment. Pair this wine with grilled shrimp, scallops, or, as a stand-alone cocktail." -Winery
"Handpicked fruit was barrel fermented in French oak from five separate coopers, the wood coming from the forests of Allier and Voges. Malolactic fermentation was completed in late April of 2009, softening the acidity and creating a round, buttery character. Allowed to barrel age "sur lees" for twelve months, this wine is polished, elegant, and very round on the palate." -Winery
"Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is one of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County. Specialized trellising allows the fruit to ripen slowly, producing exceptional wines with high natural acidity. Grapes from this world famous vineyard poses up-front tropical fruit flavors, seductive texture, and excellent aging potential." -Winery
