Santa Barbara has developed a well-earned reputation for world class Chardonnay. Its sunny weather and unique soil composition foster deeply fruited, complex wines, particularly from the cool hillside slopes found within the Santa Rita Hills AVA. We have a deep appreciation for the region’s terroir and we feel it is well represented with the 2013 Westerly Chardonnay.
Deep yellow gold in color, the nose expresses exotic nuances of grilled pineapple and pear accented by honeysuckle and vanilla. The palate offers a luscious oily texture and rich melon and guava flavors tempered by a refreshing hint of citrus zest that persists through the soft, creamy finish. A bold New World expression of Chardonnay that is beautiful on its own or paired to grilled scallops or poached lobster.
