Medium-bodied Chardonnay, 25% Santa Lucia Highlands grapes, 75% from the San Bernabe Estate Vineyard, all ‘Certified Sustainable’. Partially aged on a mix of French and American oak for 11 months. Beautiful pale golden hue and aromas of apple, toasted oak and hints of peach cobbler, coconut and pineapple. Delicate flavours of crème brûlée, vanilla bean and butterscotch with notes of key lime providing freshness in the palate.
Combine with fine and pure dishes: soft grilled fish or poultry. Salad with seafood, ‘tomate crevettes’ - tomato stuffed with fresh shrimps & homemade mayo. Delicious with roasted lobster with garlic and fine herbs.
About this winery
Diora is a family-owned winery in Monterey California, its name is inspired from the French ‘Or’, referring to the golden hills of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. Grapes are sourced from both San Bernabe and Santa Lucia Highlands. In Monterey, the vines thrive off the Monterey Bay’s cool ocean breezes and the elevated positioning of the Santa Lucia Highlands helps produce Diora’s underlying structure and mouth-coating texture. Monterey has an excellent reputation for classy Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
