Santa Barbara County
Our Chardonnay captures the cool-climate terroir of Santa Barbara County at its best. Stone fruit aromas segue to flavors of green apple and zesty citrus on the palate, framed by a lively, refreshing finish. This clean, un-oaked style of Chardonnay is elegant and lean—the perfect complement for light pastas, grilled fish or summer salads.
Los Alamos Vineyard rests just 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara County, parallel to the region’s unusual east-west coastal range, whose valleys usher wind and fog across the vines each day. Perhaps most notable for its soil, Los Alamos is comprised almost entirely of sand. The soil heats up quickly, initiating bud beak earlier than neighboring sites and affording the grapes more time to develop their signature concentrated flavors.
To preserve the vibrant coastal character of our Chardonnay grapes, this wine was crafted without any oak influence. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, this Chardonnay did not undergo malolactic fermentation, allowing the pure flavor of the fruit to shine through. The result is an alluring combination of tropical aromas, rich flavors, refreshing acidity and a vibrant mouthfeel.
