2016 BREWER-CLIFTON STA. RITA HILLS CHARDONNAY ($36)

With the goal of expressing a comprehensive expression of the appellation, we selected three unique vineyard sites to create this Sta. Rita Hills bottling.

While each lot is handled separately and in a completely uniform fashion in the winery, each contributes vastly different expressions which ultimately harmonize in the finished wine.
