Migration is dedicated to crafting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions to create wines that highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccably balanced oak. Located atop a mesa overlooking the Santa Maria River, Dierberg Vineyard has emerged as one of Santa Maria Valley’s great Chardonnay sites. Grown in sandy soils, Dierberg’s meticulously farmed vines face the full force of the winds that sweep off the Pacific, producing low yields of concentrated Chardonnay. The result is a wine with length and force that is highlighted by bright acidity and beautiful peach, nectarine and white flower aromatics.

Winemaker Notes
This lithe and lovely wine offers rich citrus and stone fruit aromas of lemon custard, nectarine and lime zest, as well as a subtle note of toasted hazelnut. On the palate, vibrant acidity gives energy to flavors of lemon, lime, citrus blossom and honeydew melon that carry through to a focused finish with a hint of oaky spice.
