Fermented with natural yeasts and cropped at low yields, this small production, unfiltered, unoaked Chardonnay has become a house favorite. The 2015 was sourced from 89% Santa Barbara County and 11% Santa Maria Valley. Vineyards included: While Hills Block 20-7A (59%), White Hills block 18-6 (22%), While Hills Vineyard (7%), RTV SMB Blocks L and O (8%). Dominant soil types include limestone, sand, and clay-loam mixtures which are excellent for Chardonnay. The strong Pacific influence (breezes, fog) has a strong moderating and cooling effect, extending the growing season and preserving acidity/freshness, which is also a big positive when making good Chardonnay. Look for pear, citrus, brioche and honey blossom aromas and flavors. With richness, purity and balance, this lovely little Chardonnay demonstrates what can be achieved with high quality, naturally fermented unoaked fruit.
