Lot 529
2015 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

This Chardonnay deftly walks the line between our Arroyo Seco bottlings and the unwooded Lot 526. Think Burgundy with a kiss of California sunshine.

The nose is gorgeous, exploding out of the glass with a veil of orange blossom and papaya pierced by a super cool gunflint/white pepper note, girded with fresh churned butter. Upfront notes of papaya brighten with a mouthwatering mid-palate of mandarin and blossom that finishes with a wave of buttery caramel, papaya and white pepper. Lovely purity and fabulosity.

Style: Light, Crisp

Flavors: Mandarine, Papaya

Cam Confidential
From the cool climate of the Santa Maria Valley, this Chardonnay deftly walks the line between our Arroyo Seco bottlings and the unwooded Lot 526 Santa Barbara Chardonnay. Think Burgundy with a kiss of California sunshine. Drink it ice cold if you like, but ideally this wine gets pulled out of the fridge half an hour before you drink it to give it a chance to get up to cellar temp of 55 degrees. This is a very small production from a $35/bottle program (about 350 cases), so get it before it's gone!
