Meiomi Chardonnay embodies the characters of California's most notable coastal wine regions. Unifying the unique characters from each region allows this Chardonnay to distinguish itself as an elegant, balanced Chardonnay fully formed. Sonoma County contributes notes of crisp apple and lean minerality, while Santa Barbara County gives exotic sweet spice and lively tropical fruit notes -- and Monterey County creates the ripe stone fruit core and round, creamy texture. Each Chardonnay lot is crafted to maximize its individuality and contribution to the final blend. These diverse Chardonnays are seamlessly melded together creating a multifaceted wine with graceful disposition.
