Scheid District 7 ChardonnayScheid District 7 Chardonnay comes from a vineyard at Greenfeld where the morning fog lingers to protect the vines from the heat of the sun. Oak aged to impart texture, vanilla oak and butterscotch to supplement the citrus and pear fruit.

California is divided into 17 grape crush districts, encompassing a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. District 7 is situated in Monterey County that hugs the coast of California with a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. It also has the longest growing season in California, a result of the chilled marine air from the Monterey Bay that rushes down the Salinas Valley each day. This longer ‘hang time’ gives the wine freshness, elegance and balance.

The cool climate estate vineyards, located just outside of the town of Greenfeld, are blessed with a climate that is perfect for growing top-quality Chardonnay. With morning fogs that often linger until mid-day, the intricate fruit flavours have time to develop while preserving crucial acidity. These just-right conditions place Monterey on par with the best growing regions of the world.
