About SeaGlass 2021 Chardonnay, Central Coast
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 5% Chenin Blanc was blended in. The result is an alluring combination of tropical aromas, rich flavors, refreshing acidity and a vibrant mouthfeel.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded this a Best Buy and scored it 91 points saying "This is another deft punch from this brand, starting with aromas of chalk, lychee, poached pear and honeysuckle. That chalky tension holds firm through the tropical notes of pineapple and lychee on the palate."
