Wine Spectator 89 points! Wine Enthusiast 89 points! 

Vinum Cellars Chardonnay Monterey is a beautiful wine of 100% Chardonnay from Monterey. Vinum Cellars was founded in 1997 by first-generation California family winemakers Richard Bruno and Chris Condos in the Napa Valley, financing their dream on credit cards. Their focus was then and remains searching California’s coastal vineyards and special microclimates in search of the best vineyards grown by the state’s best growers. 

Vinum Cellars Chardonnay Monterey was made from grapes grown at the Arroyo Loma Vineyard in King City within Monterey by famed Central Coast grower Steve McIntyre. The vineyard is sustainable and farmed organically, but not certified. The grapes were picked cool at night, whole-cluster pressed and barrel fermented on the natural lees and put through 100% malo-lactic. It was aged in barrel and stirred over 18 months. 

This wine explodes with generous tropical flavors from mango to passionfruit and custard flavors. The acidity shines through the creamy texture and demonstrates the optimal acidity that cool climate Monterey grapes possess. The finish is long with silky vanillin, clove, guava and papaya and elegance of lingering acidity. 

“Buttery version, with plenty of toastiness to the ripe apple and baked pear flavors. Hints of dried mint midpalate, with a spicy finish.”—Wine Spectator 89 points! 

Enjoy Vinum Cellars Chardonnay with lobster, grilled sea bass, roast chicken and pork roast.
