Brewer-Clifton Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay 2018

Santa Rita Hills, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesThe Brewer-Clifton philosophy is embedded in the geographic, geologic, and climatic peculiarities of the Santa Barbara sub-AVA Santa Rita Hills. This blend comprises 3D Machado, Acin, and Hapgood vineyards yielding a range of intense tropical fruit aided by only neutral barrels adding zero extra weight to the wine. 2018 is fresh and juicy, mixing baked orchard fruits with mineral, saline notes boosted with orange marmalade streaks for extra added lift. Best with grilled lobster, Dungeness crab with butter, or your favourite holiday roasted turkey with stuffing.Tasted: 10 June 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 42.99 select private retailers AB 35.99 select private retailers SK 44.99 special order MB 44.99 special order ON 44.95 Aug 12th Vintages & Consignment Summit Fine Wines Producer: Brewer-CliftonDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
