Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2018

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesI love the direction this chardonnay is heading, mainly dropping weight and fat and softness for the purity of tropical Santa Barabara fruit. The site is located on the coastal Santa Maria Bench in Santa Barbara County. Typically typical fog-blanketed and cool, its fossilized seashells, shale, limestone, and sand soils are planted to the Wente selection, and clones 4, 76, 96. I love the brightness, and shocking citrus, apple, pink grapefruit, and tangerine, with plenty of fresh west coast acidity. Much improved oak finishes leave it a New World delight.
