Wine Details

Lot 526 pours a yellow hue with a vibrant green tinge, much like the wines of Chablis (the stuff from France, people, not the crap in a jug). Acacia blossom, lemon oil, and white pepper explode from the glass with a slatey mineral backbone. It’s layered and nuanced on the palate with a rich fruit entry but with plenty of nerve on the pure, slatey, lemon-lime finish. Absolutely gorgeous (not to mention mouthwatering), and showing way more class and sophistication than just about anything from CA at this price point.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from a legendary limestone vineyard in Santa Barbara, this wine found its way into our hands as a “shiner” (bottled wine with no label), and has already spent over a year in bottle and cellar. With the aging already taken care of, it’s drinking beautifully and ready to go for summer quaffing. No oak aging, no malolactic fermentation - minerally and crisp yet delightfully rewarding on the palate, this is a refreshing change of pace – here you’ll find the native flavors of the Chardonnay grape, and trust me, you won’t miss the oak or butter.

I don't drink white wine but I brought this for our guest when they come over for dinner. My wife opened one those bottle and it turns out I hit the jackpot :-). her and her girlfriend thought it was GREAT!

I'm not much of Chardonnay fan but this was quite crisp and refreshing. Hope they get more of these.

I thought this wine was rather "flat". I prefer going in the direction of either the "buttery and oaky" chards or the crisp minerally Chablis. This one didn't take me anywhere.

I generally don't care for Chardonnays that have a strong oak taste. This Lot 526 is bright and light - great everyday drinking wine.

Very nice chardonnay, light and crisp. Drinks like an unoaked chardonnay. Will order more!

This chardonnay is very good tasting and very smooth.
It is one of the most smoothest of the Cameron Hughes chardonnays.
The taste is very good too.
Hope to see more of these in the future.
