Sourced entirely from the single Los Alamos Vineyard is nestled in Santa Barbara's rolling hills, a climate considered by many to be ideal for Burgundian varietals. The cool ocean air and abundant fog of Santa Barbara County allow Chardonnay grapes to ripen slowly and evenly while developing delicate, complex flavors and crisp acidity. To complement and preserve the fruitís vibrant coastal character, the wine is made in a lightly-oaked style through a combination of fermentation techniques. Oak barrel fermentation using both French and American oak is completed with a majority of the blend, while the remainder is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the grapeís natural flavors. The result is a final blend that combines tropical aromas and rich flavors with refreshing acidity and a vibrant mouthfeel. This 2016 was just awarded "Best of Class" with a 95 point score in the California State Fair Wine Competition.
