Highly recommended by Eric Asimov at the New York Times : ‘Santa Barbara Chardonnays are produced with the aim of finesse and subtlety, the style I greatly prefer, positively influenced by a cool marine climate and less obvious oak aging.’ Santa Barbara Winery Chardonnay is a perfect example of this. Fermented 1/3 in oak and 2/3 in stainless, the wine keeps its crispness and freshness while having smooth, lightly buttery notes from frequent lees stirring. Bright and flavorful with fruit intensity, this is delicious with shrimp, ceviche and creamy cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastProperly restrained on the nose, this bottling offers aromas of chalk, honeysuckle and sliced tangerine. There is good zip and freshness to the sip, where lemon rinds and squeezed grapefruit flavors ride an energetic structure.
