Oceano Wines Chardonnay 2021

San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast, California, United StatesOceano Wines is a boutique winery founded in 2016 in San Luis Obispo Coast, the newly designated AVA highlighting this cool climate wine region. This comes off the Spanish Springs Vineyard, the westernmost vineyard in the US, 1.5 miles from the Pacific, on a mix of marine shale, limestone, sandstone. This Chardonnay, off clones 809, 17, and 96, was fermented in 228L French oak barrels, where it remained for 9 months. Fresh and bright, layered with green apple, lemon verbena, fresh almond, along a fragrant, lightly creamy palate, this finishes with a wash of salinity. Very smart, modern Cali chardy.Tasted: 15 June 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
