2013 Deep Sea Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County
The 2013 vintage is elegant and fresh, with notes of white peach, lemon, and green apple. Bright acidity and a hint of vanilla complement the ripe fruit flavors in this crisp, modern style of Chardonnay.
The fruit for our 2013 Deep Sea Chardonnay Santa Barbara County was sourced from one of the premier vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley. We have come to love the fruit profile that comes out of this northern Santa Barbara County region. The cool ocean breeze and fog come up the Santa Maria river bed and help blanket the vines throughout the growing year, The wines from this appellation (Santa Barbara and the Santa Maria Valley) naturally hold on to gracious amounts of refreshing acidity, and the tropical fruit notes are consistent year to year.
When you pour a glass of our Santa Barbara County Chardonnay, you will understand our love for this region. Subtle lemongrass notes blend with a background of tangerine rind, pear, green apple and meringue. Balance is the goal of every winemaker, and this is a fine example of balanced and complex flavors. The acids are perfectly integrated and complement the fruit notes. This is a beautiful vintage., to be enjoyed all summer long.
