Carmel Road is based in the town of Soledad, inland from Monterey’s rugged coastline and along the Arroyo Seco river. The first vintage was released in 1999 with the winery producing cool climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc that showcase the elegance of California's coastal vineyards.
100% Chardonnay from Monterey vineyards featuring rich fruit and a long finish due to maturation on lees. Brilliant pale straw colour with highlights of green around the edges and a watery hue. Heady ripe peach and apricot scents engulf the nostrils with hints of honeycomb, butterscotch, crème brulee and spice also chiming in. Mouth filling flavours of peach and apricot are delivered with ample richness and a creamy textural feel. Honeycomb, toasty oak, crème brulee and spice elements linger through the back half. A lick of freshness shining through on the fleshy mid length finish.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
