Santa Barbara remains one of my favorite winegrowing regions to score gems, and with good reason – as both a wine consumer and industry insider, I think the quality-price ratio here is simply outstanding. At the moment, there might not be any wine producing region in California that delivers better value per dollar.
Lot 675 comes to us from a historic property that's home to one of the early pioneers and elder statesmen of Santa Barbara’s wine industry, crafted by a top winemaking team using grapes sourced from Bien Nacido (widely considered the best vineyard in the entire Santa Maria Valley). Aged in French oak Burgundy barrels before bottling, this is a terrific Chard from a perennial winery of the year candidate that exhibits pure class at an unbeatable price!
Great for sipping or serving with a light meal.
Good chardonnay, but not my favorite.
Solid Santa Barbara Chard
Solid Santa Barbara Chard. Good value for the price point.
Nice sipping wine
Very smooth chard. Not as buttery as we like but, for the money, a nice wine.
Solid, round tastes with some butter and hints of citrus. A pleasant summer wine .
Right in the middle
I have such a soft spot in my heart for Santa Barbara Chardonnay, and (no surprise) this one does not disappoint. The quality is a delight, especially at the price. It's so well balanced that I think it would appeal to those who like their oak and those who like more of a French Chablis. I like both of those extremes and everything in between. The 675 is one of several that's on my CH reorder list. I'll drink this one year round!
A great Chardonnay
We first received this wine in the June quarterly shipment, found it to be very refreshing, and have already reordered.
Arroyo Secco is my favorite CH chardonnay, and while I enjoyed this wine, I didn't like it as well as the Arroyo Secco. Different tastes for different people, I know, but I prefer more of an oaky/vanilla taste which this didn't have much of. That said, still a great value and great wine.
One of the best Chards offered by Cameron
Oh my! For $14 this is a huge value. My wife and I love this Chardonnay. It is a full-bodied buttery Chard with acidity to give it structure. This tastes like a fine
French Burgundy. I will definitely buy more. I have a feeling it won't last long in Cameron's inventory.
“July is dressed up and playing her tune…”
This Lot 675 Chardonnay 2017 from Santa Barbara is just what you are looking for to start off the summer. I think I may have to pick up another 12 bottles that will score me bonus points with my wife. This Chardonnay has a wonderful body, and a good balance of sweet fruit and light acidity. It has just a whiff of oak and vanilla. Tonight I think we will pop the cork over a broiled rainbow trout. Delicious!
