The La Cruz Vineyard is located in the heart of the Petaluma Gap AVA southeast of the city Petaluma. Here, morning fog gives way to warm mid-day temperatures, with wind and fog picking up again in the afternoon. This "wind tunnel" effect results in slow, even maturation of the fruit at lower sugar levels, developing intense flavors and balanced acidity.
Pair this delicious Chardonnay with salmon, halibut, and shellfish. We do not over-oak our Chardonnay, therefore, it will not be a "big ball of butter." You can taste the fruit and the food and its perfect for a light lunch or a warm evening meal. Need the perfect recipe? Click here for recipes from McEvoy's own Chef JJ. ENJOY!
