Food Pairings for Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay
The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of Californias coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime airs persistent movement either inland or seaward. The oceans influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool, while preserving the grapes natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating richly flavored Chardonnay fruit with grapefruit and other citrus flavors paired with peach and tropical flavors. Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit flavors.TECHNICAL DATAVintage:2007Varietal Composition:99% Chardonnay, 1% White RieslingOrigin:100% Monterey Arroyo SecoTotal Acidity:0.67 g/100mlpH:3.63Alcohol:13.90% alc by vol.Residual Sugar:0.43 g/100mlWINEMAKERS COMMENTSThe 2007 Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay is a youthful, pale yellow in color with zesty citrus, orange blossom, and lime custard aromas.
