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 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 and 6% Chenin Blanc was blended in. The result is an alluring combination of tropical aromas, rich flavors, refreshing acidity and a vibrant mouthfeel.
This 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.
