Description

Since 1989 our family owned and operated winery has produced wines of superior quality and value. This handcrafted wine represents the best of what Santa Barbara County Chardonnay has to offer. Flavors of ripe apple, butter, lemon, and melon are perfectly balanced with light toasty oak on the palate.

Wine Critic Reviews
"A great entry-level expression for the veteran winery, this bottling begins with clean aromas of white peach, gardenia and woody potpourri on the nose. The palate clings with a textural edge, allowing lemon-blossom flavors to shine" ~ Wine Enthusiast "...a terrific introduction to the year and this range. Tropical and floral accents lend nuance to a bright, sculpted Chardonnay that captures the truest essence of Santa Barbara. Dollops of Viognier and Grenache Blanc perk things up nicely. Best of all, the 2021 is a superb value." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "...a good value, offering a plump, medium-bodied, peach, and floral style that stays balanced and clean. It's ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years. As with everything here, it's well-made." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
