Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points 

"Tropical, nutty and robust in initial oak, this wine settles into a nice balanced place, slightly reductive and youthful. Apple and pear compote give it a fruity flavor nuanced in lushness." 

Vineyards & Terroir:

"When sourcing Chardonnay fruit, we seek those Carneros vineyards that offer diversity in both aspects and clonal selection. The result is a complex and vibrant Chardonnay most reflective of the Carneros region.

Carneros is known for its loam and clay soils; a mixture of flat land and rolling hillside s and has the reliable marine fog that rolls in at evening t and burns off in the mid-morning." 

Winemaking: 

"After night harvesting, the Chardonnay fruit arrives at Saintsbury within the hour of its pick. The clusters are sorted and transferred directly to a gentle, whole cluster press. The settled juice then goes to barrel for fermentation. During its 8 months in French oak barrels, we employ bâtonnage to ensure a complex and well-balanced wine. The wine was bottled in June and finished with a Stelvin screwcap closure." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
