2016 Lustra Monterey County Chardonnay

Chardonnay from California’s warm Central Coast is all about hedonistic pleasure through ripeness and unctuous flavor. Our expression of this region is no exception. Packed with rich, robust flavors of tropical fruit wrapped in a smooth, polished texture, this wine coats your palate ever so enjoyably and leaves you with a long, silky finish. Drink this wine on its own on a cool afternoon, or pair it with butter-poached seafood for a sublime experience.

Hybrid grape varieties, though not known for making particularly tasty wine, are a cross of grape varieties from different species. Hybrid vines, however, are much more resilient to harsh weather and agricultural diseases and fungi.
