Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2017

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesIs this the best yet Katherine’s from Cambria Estate, one of two vineyards named after the Jackson sisters Katie and Julia of Jackson Family Wines? The site is located on the coastal Santa Maria Bench in Santa Barbara County. This cooler, fog-blanketed and limestone-laden site is planted to clones 4, 76, 96, and the Wente selection. There's a marvellous freshness here led by green apple streaked with lemon and peach folded into a creamy, complex lees that tones the mid-palate down. The finish is equally bright with lots of nutmeg, hazelnut, and more pear and green apple fruit. Impressive style change.Tasted: 24 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: Cambria Estate Vineyard & WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
