Explore the prestigious Santa Lucia Highlands, where we hand selected rows of vines for this exclusive McBride Sisters Collection Reserve Chardonnay “The Great Escape” 2021. This wine is an escape from the overly oaked style of many California Chardonnays and highlights the natural elegance and bright flavors of the grape.
Pale straw color. Clean and bright with a hint of creaminess on the nose. Lemon curd, green apple, pear, and peach are laced with just a hint of toasty oak. This enticing aroma leads into a texturally engaging palate with crisp acidity and fresh, crunchy fruit contrasted with creaminess from the lees aging. Pair with rich cheeses, savory small bites, or seafood. An exceptional expression of Santa Lucia Highlands fruit character, this wine drinks well now and through 2026.
“When I was a baby, my mom drove our bright red Volkswagen bug up the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to a small town called Monterey. This is where I fell in love with vineyards and winemaking.”
