Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Based in Monterey, founded in 1986, the name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate.” Straw with simple aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate mango and peachy flavors with underlying sweetness adding some vanilla notes. Creamy finish, medium length, overall good value for 10 bucks.

Like this. Just as sipping wine with feta cheese and pita bread. Not over-powering. Kind of subtle and inviting one more sip.

A bit of effervescence. Pleasant, lighter chard with some tropical notes.

Crisp, dry with creamy finish. It has become one of my favorite chardonnays.
