Lot 526 has been a huge hit over here, and I am very happy to have Lot 533 to offer. It’s the next vintage from the same producer out of the same vineyard and, lo and behold, it’s even better (that shouldn’t surprise you, every vintage is always better than the last). This time it even has the added value of a name “Limestone Cowboy” on the label which, of course, makes it better still.
For those of you aching for something different in California Chardonnay, I am pleased to offer an unwooded, no malo Chardonnay from a legendary limestone vineyard in Santa Barbara. 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. If you were a fan of Lot 526, you'll love its 2015 vintage sibling.
I am a fan of oaky chardonnay's but this one is very nice with less oak
Escape to a favorite place
Beautiful nose, lemon, pineapple and floral hints. Crisp and dry, almost lemon drop and tart apple on the palate with a very nice, lingering finish. Very enjoyable!
A nice chard for this time of year. My wife and I typically enjoy more oak, but this was still enjoyable.
Hope it comes back
This is a really great Chard for the summer months as it is much more crisp and refreshing (no oak) for those hot summer afternoons on the water. I have a few but wish I would have got more.
Very easy drinking wine. I would prefer more oak but friends who say they don’t like Chardonnay like this wine. Crisp, simple wine that pares well with any food.
It's been hiding its secrets
It's been 8 months since I opened a bottle of 533. With the several I'd had previously, the minerality took the center stage. But now the wine is much more balanced - a really elegant combination of fruit, acid and mineral. I wish I had been more patient and saved the others until the prime drinking window that has now opened.
Amazing Chard Ever!
Nice Summer Chardonnay
I really liked this Chardonnay a little on the light side, taste more of the chard. Good one for summer.
Solid Chard for Everyday
Like this one. Good flavor but not too heavy or oaky. A cut above the usual suspects in your local store at this price point.
I drank this with my mom who is a huge cakebread drinker. She loved it and I enjoyed it myself. Perfect!
