Trail Marker Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 2019
Trail Marker is a tiny gem of a family winery focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains and Mendocino Ridge made in a classic, old-world way. Born in 2012 with the goal of working with cooler, coastal sites to produce wines with finesse and delineation, they have a “hands-off” winemaking approach and use little or no new oak.
The Santa Cruz Chardonnay comes from two sites at approximately 800ft above sea level. The wine is produced using very natural techniques and is aged 13 months in neutral, French oak. A great mid-weight Chardonnay full of flavor. Practicing organic.
