BROADSIDE 2012 CHARDONNAY "WHITE HAWK" SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 750mL

The White Hawk Vineyard is a 60-acre vineyard planted on ancient sand dunes on a south facing canyon slope, part of the Los Alamos Valley in Santa Barbara County. Well known for contributing to many of the greatest Syrah-based wines in California (the 1OO-pt Sine Qua Non "Poker Face"being a noteworthy example), it gives Broadside another great opportunity to highlight remarkable terroir through the transparent elegance of restrained Chardonnay.

The Chardonnay is picked early based on the winemaker's preference of acid structure and flavor development, leaving plenty of space for the character of the vineyard to shine through. The grapes are whole-cluster pressed, cold-settled, and left to ferment naturally in barrel and concrete egg. Green-gold with invitingly subtle notes of brioche, apple and the sea. Fleshes out on the palate with good weight and substance, echoing the fruit-aromatics with Old World style minerality. Finishes rich and dry, interplaying texture and acidity.
