Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2015

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesCambria Estate is led by sisters and Katie and Julia Jackson (of Jackson Family Wines) and located in the coastal Santa Maria Bench in Santa Barbara County. This cooler, fog-blanketed and limestone-laden site is planted to clones 4, 76, 96, Wente, and spent six months in wood, 83 French (the remainder American) and 21 percent new. There's a lovely lemon freshness that raises this richer white, near 15 declared degrees. Downy lees beds the palate, accented with nutmeg and hazelnut, grounded by cool pear and green apple, and lingering with perfumed vanilla. A slightly more modern take on very traditional Cali Chard?Tasted: 30 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: Cambria Estate Vineyard & WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
