Chardonnay

2014

The Federalist chardonnay pays homage to the work of our Federalist Founding Fathers to the U.S. Constitution.  Most notably, John Adams, whose spirit we carry forward with our wines – exposing drinkers to the rich flavors, ripe fruits, and bright acidity of Santa Barbara chardonnay.  It is full-bodied with a long, lingering finish.  Our Chardonnay boasts an oak backbone balanced with big fruit flavors and a nice acidity.
