2016 Diatom Spear Chardonnay

Sourced from a portion of Spear Vineyard with a steep, north facing slope overlooking Highway 246 and situated in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. This parcel is predominantly clay loam soil and is within one of the newest and most sought after organically farmed vineyards in the area.  Clone 4 is known for being sharp and precise which seemed like a great fit to explore and exhibit Spear.

“Citrus blossom, jasmine and watermelon water aromatics followed by pineapple and apricot skin flavors.  Laser like purity – saline mouthfeel.”
