Our Chardonnay releases from Arroyo Seco have been the #1 best selling white wine in our store each year we've been able to offer them, and for good reason - Monterey County tends to deliver at the perfect intersection of quality and value.
A cool climate region located southeast of Monterey Bay with direct exposure to the Pacific Ocean, Arroyo Seco is one of California's smallest AVAs. The foggy and windy nature of the area, combined with low annual rainfall due to the rain shadow created by the Santa Lucia Mountains to the west, make it a perfect setting for Chardonnay grapes. Made in a rich, buttery, oaky, and tropical style, Lot 655 is aged in 70% new American oak barrels and is a delicious go-to wine for any and every occasion.
As soon as I opened this amazing chardonnay I went to order more. Everyone must have thought the same because it was out of stock quickly. No surprise. What a value for this honey and cream chardonnay.
very nice! so smooth and crisp, buttery!
Really excellent. Not usually a huge Chardonnay fan--Bought this bottle on a whim and very impressed!
Enjoyed this Chardonnay!
I’m not a frequent Chardonnay drinker, as I almost always reach for a red. I always have a Chardonnay in the fridge for those who prefer white, and it’s when I open a bottle for someone else that I will often pour myself a glass. I’m still learning what I like, and this was pretty good, I would order it again.
Very Good- not too oaky or buttery
Chardonnay has so many profiles. This is not your typical ABC wine. I like that it tastes like chardonnay, but has more acidity and citrus/ banana peel flavors rather than oak and butter. Great everyday sipper daytime or night. Solid QPR. Happy a new Arroyo seco comes out each year.
Varies by vintage // Always look forward to this release
A few years ago, I was introduced to this wine and ended up buying a few cases -- it was awesome. The residual sugar seems to vary year-to-year and when the balance is right, this is just a fantastic wine. That said, each vintage has been a bit nuanced, so I've found I need to order 1-2 before doing/not doing a larger reorder. This year's wine was still a very nice QPR but maybe with a little less depth than other vintages, if you prefer a more buttery profile.
My wife likes buttery and I prefer crisper chardonnays but this satisfied both of us.
Chardonnay is not my first choice, so I was delighted by this Arroyo Seco. Full and buttery without being overbearing. Nice acidity & balance.
ABC you say
Many in my family say Anything but Chardonnay, which is great, because more for the wife and I. Oh yes, we say, too buttery and Oak-ey, you would not like it...surprising we always hesitate to buy this each year and then when we do, quickly buy more before it sells out! You have to spend a lot, like Rombauer price to get a wine this nice and drinkable.
