Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2019

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesKatherine’s Vineyard is located on the coastal Santa Maria Bench in Santa Barbara County. The property is typically fog-covered and cool most mornings, providing a surface asset to match the underground fossilized seashells, shale, limestone, and sand soils planted to the Wente selection and clones 4, 76, 96. The wine is rich but bright most years with intense citrus, ripe red apple, tangerine, and pink grapefruit with a dusting of vanilla and honey over bright acidity. Big and busy, but still food friendly with creamy pasta and or halibut dishes. Big value for New World chardonnay lovers. Should be on every restaurant wine list in the province under $55.Tasted: 11 June 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.99 BCLS AB 26.99 select private retailers SK 29.99 special order MB 29.99 special order ON 29.95 consignment - Summit Fine Wine Producer: Cambria Estate Vineyard & WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
