Summerland Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2013
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
The aromatics of the 2013 Chardonnay begin with key lime and ripe, green apple, leading to subtle notes of honeydew melon. Secondary hints of wet soil, white pepper are followed by fresh pear and hints of honey and oak. Delightful and cleansing acid structure with a layered creamy finish.
Quite light in color, this is a lighter style of Chardonnay, kicking off with crispy green apple aromas mixed with a bit of barrel smoke. Lime and apple lead the lean palate, which shines with granite minerality.
