Lockwood Vineyards Monterey Chardonnay 2014

Winery Information:
First released in 1989, Lockwood Vineyard was developed under the belief that world class estate produced wines are attainable through ideal vineyard location and quality winemaking. Lockwood Vineyard's founders, Paul Toeppen, Phil Johnson and Butch Lindley, who have cumulative vineyard management experience of over 90 years, first planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, and is one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world. Under the new ownership of Boisset Famiy Estates, Lockwood Vineyard continues to be devoted to producing high quality estate grown wines.

Viticulture:
Early in the morning the entire region is cool and largely covered by a thick marine layer. As the sun rises, the valley warms and the heat burns off the dense fog. Cool air off the pacific Ocean is drawn in and funneled through the Gabilanand Santa Lucia mountain ranges, moving down the valley with increasing force as the day progresses. The ocean air acts as natural air conditioning system that mitigates the rise in temperature and extends the growing season, allowing for slow, gentle ripening. The unique topography of Monterey is protected from huge heat spikes that can cause damage in the vineyards, making it the ideal place to grow many different grape varieties.

Soil:
Crushed fossilized seashells similar to chalk and limestone

Tasting Note:
Pale lemon yellow in colour, the 2011 Lockwood Vineyard Chardonnay has bright citrus and green apple aromas and flavours, along with a touch of crisp spice. The bright fruit with its clean acidity and minerality, leads to a refreshing, long finish. The perfect accompaniament to many seafood and chicken dishes.

Every day serving suggestion:
Chilled to 8-9°C. Will pair well with pasta dishes made with cream or cheese sauces, lobster or other rich seafood and with Asian dishes that include coconut milk.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
