Winemaker: Matt Dees
AVA: Santa Barbara County
Barrel Aging: 1/3 neutral French oak, 1/3 New French oak, 1/3 stainless tanks 1/3 went through malolactic fermentation.
Bottled: Unfined and Unfiltered
Tasting Notes: Invigorating combination of ripe and silky fruit alongside a refreshing backbone of vibrant acidity. An inviting and delectable chardonnay that offers something for everyone.
Low yields and cool days created a blend that is both bold and rich as well as chiseled and steely. Citrus and green melon and hints of baking spice. Ready to pop and pour, it shines immediately out of the bottle.
Awards: 88 Points Antonio Galloni Vinous, 90 Points Jeb Dunnuck jebdunnuck.com
