    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Grand Firepeak Cuvee (or GFC) Chardonnay is a classically-styled Chardonnay is nicely structured and well balanced, with a subtle acid backbone. Flavors of apple and crisp pear are seamlessly woven with notes of citrus, minerality, and a hint of vanilla.

    The Grand Firepeak Vineyard is the Niven family's estate vineyard on the most northern, coolest end of the Edna Valley on California's Central Coast. It's planted to a diverse clonal selction of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cuvee is French term denoting a specific blend or batch, carefully assembled by a winemaker.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There's some barrel influence in this Chardonnay, but the oak is way in the background. What stars is Edna Valley fruit, pure and refined and textbook varietal. Pineapples, tangerines, Meyer lemons, limes, kiwis, you get the idea--clean, acidic, mouthwatering citrus fruits--brilliantly crisp and tangy. Drink right away for maximum freshness.
