Lockwood Vineyards Central Coast Chardonnay 2018

An unoaked style of Chardonnay, creamy with lots of
vanilla and lemon curd flavours and a rich finish.
Producer Note
First released in 1989, Lockwood Vineyard was developed under the belief that world
class estate produced wines are attainable through ideal vineyard location and quality
winemaking. Lockwood Vineyard's founders, Paul Toeppen, Phil Johnson and Butch
Lindley, who have cumulative vineyard management experience of over 90 years, first
planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the
parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area
nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, and is
one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world. Under the new ownership of
Boisset Family Estates, Lockwood Vineyard continues to be devoted to producing high
quality estate grown wines.
Vintage
February saw abundant rain, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early
summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred later than average, but under ideal
weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous
sunshine during the day and cooler marine influences. The relatively mild summer was
followed by extended autumn sunshine and moderate heat, creating near-ideal
conditions to allow the fruit to accumulate flavour complexity with gradual increases in
sugar levels. Volume on average was increased by 20-30%.
Vineyard
The grapes are cultivated across the Central Coast, one of the most diverse and
climatically cool grape growing regions in California. The soils are made up of crushed
fossilised seashells similar to chalk and limestone, which produces elegantly styled
wines.
Winemaking
The grapes were selectively harvested during the cool of the night. Cool fermented in
100% stainless steel in order to obtain a fresh and fruit-driven style, the wine was also
matured on its fine lees with weekly stirring to add texture and complexity. Made in an
unoaked style to maintain the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
This Chardonnay shows delightful aromas of delicate white flowers, fresh green apple
and notes of caramel. Clean flavours of apricot and pear are balanced by hint of key
lime and lively mineral notes, with a creamy texture and supple mouthfeel, the crisp
acidity leads to a long finish.
