Arroyo Seco’s warm, sunny days are followed by chilly afternoon winds that sweep across the Salinas Valley from Monterey Bay. This dramatic daily cooling keeps the grapes on the vines well into the season, intensifying varietal character while keeping acid levels high. The Arroyo Seco River – an eastward-flowing tributary of the Salinas River – cuts a narrow gorge into the Santa Lucia mountains.
This is the Hahn Family’s first release of the Arroyo Seco which makes the wine from two prominent Santa Lucia Highlands Vineyards: Ste. Nicolaus Vineyard and Ste. Philippe Vineyard. With the loamy, sandy soils from each of the vineyards, the Chardonnay produced is concentrated, weighty and expressive. It’s definitely more on the full-bodied side than on the medium. It’s a really strong debut here from Hahn.

“Weighty, mouth-filling body with notes of lemon-flavored butterscotch, brioche and ripe papaya. Good mineral content shows off terroir and creates a shock of dryness on the palate. Extremely expressive.”
