Our wine experts discovered the grapes for Locklyn in California's Santa Maria Valley. This valley is one of the few in California that run west to east and is open to the ocean. Every night, sea fog moves in from the Pacific, blanketing the vineyards in a cloudy shroud that doesn't burn off until late morning. This unique microclimate means the grapes slowly ripen to Chardonnay perfection.
Bottled exclusively for FreshDirect Wines & Spirits, this golden-colored wine has a lush nose of tree fruit and stone fruit with a touch of toast and oak. On the palate ripe pear and golden delicious apple notes blend with hints of honeydew melon and acacia flower to create an alluring bouquet. The finish is clean and fresh without the tinge of bitterness of many of its peers. Enjoy as an aperitif or serve with cheeses, chicken, grilled seafood, and lobster.
