2022 Lou Chardonnay

Spectacular Chardonnay sourced from the family owned and organically farmed, Donnachadh Vineyard. Located on Santa Rosa Road in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County. The climate of the Santa Rita Hills is dominated by the Pacific Ocean, which lies about 9 miles from the vineyard.  Morning fog cools the grapes and consistent afternoon ocean breezes keep heat from building up over the course of the day.

The fruit was pressed whole cluster and fermented and aged in stainless barrels for 10 months untouched. Unfined, unfiltered with absolutely no additions. Think salty yuzu mineral bomb, creme brûlée and Meyer lemon.

840 bottles produced.
