Winery's Notes: "Our 2010 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay comes exclusively from our two estate vineyards in heart of this cool climate appellation. The 2010 vintage was Read More...
low yielding, itense, but balanced, resulting from a cool summer followed by a short heat wave in September. This produced intense, but elegant wines with great structure. This hand harvested, barrel fermented Chardonnay shows intriguing aromas of citrus, pineapple, and toasted hazelnut. In addition to the bright fruit, this wine has complex floral characters and minerality that carries through its long finish. This full bodied wine has nice acidity to keep it in balance and makes a nice complement to most seafood, poultry and pasta with lighter sauces, and makes an excellent pairing with mushrooms (especially chanterelles and morels)."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "Ed Sbragia can be counted on for wines that deliver consistently outstanding quality and plenty of personality. Read More...
His 2009 Cabernets are particularly of note. Sbragia also has a magic touch when it comes to Chardonnay from Gamble Ranch, fruit he has worked with since 1976.

"Sbragia's 2010 Chardonnay Gamble Ranch is beautifully bright, focused and layered. Smoke, honey, anise and ripe pears are all woven together nicely. Even with full malolactic fermentation, the 2010 is bursting with tension and energy. This is a great showing from Ed Sbragia. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016."

a laid-back Chardonnay from Sbragia, but it all works, and beautifully. This is a striking showing. The Home Ranch was aged in French oak barrels, 50% new, with full malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."

WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS - "Rich and creamy, yet light and delicate on its feet, with pear, fig, citrus and honeysuckle notes that gain depth, ending with a light toasty oak aftertaste. Drink now through 2017. 4,508 cases made."

Chardonnay grapes grown on Schug's cool-climate Carneros Estate vineyard underwent traditional European winemaking practices of barrel fermentation and aging on the lees (“sur-lie”). Read More...
Additional complexity was contributed by Chardonnay grown on the Sangiacomo, Ricci, Stille and Wood Valley vineyards.

The result is a wine with the powerful elegance of the finest white Burgundy. It has a ripe, spicy tropical bouquet with flavors that suggest citrus, pear and apple-butter. Well-balanced acidity gives it a crisp, clean finish, making it an excellent wine with food. Try it with cream soups, seafood, fowl, veal and pasta dishes.

been a wine that was hard to keep in stock, and after a short-lived hiatus, this rich, full-bodied Chardonnay has come home to roost! Having worked at other wineries known for their Chardonnays (he was at Rombauer and Chalone), Richard knows how to harmonize the yin and yang of Chardonnay; the acidity and the richness.

The 2012 growing season in the Carneros offered perfect conditions for growing high quality Chardonnay. Sourced 100% from the famed Sangiacomo Vineyard, the wine is yellow straw in color and possesses appealing aromas of vanilla crème, ripe apple and toasty new oak. The wine is nicely balanced and has a pleasing bouquet with an elegant and subtle long-flavored finish. Winemaking protocol includes full barrel fermentation, weekly stirring and secondary malo-lactic fermentation to increase complexity and richness.

fruit and poached pear flavors culminate in a lemon soufflé finish. We enhanced the wine's weighty texture and exquisite balance of toasty oak by fermenting the juice entirely in small barrels and gently stirring the yeast lees during partial (70 percent) malolactic fermentation and sur lie barrel aging. We selected a combination of French, American and Hungarian barrels to add an array of oak nuances.

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - “A cool, implosive wine, the 2011 Rincon Vineyard will thrill readers who like vibrant, pointed Chardonnays. The 2011 is Read More...
all about energy, poise and nuance, qualities it has in spades. The aromas and flavors are quite expressive, but ultimately, the Rincon is a wine of pure texture. Like all of the 2011s here, the Rincon really needs time in the glass to shine.”

The Rincon Vineyard (eight miles northeast of the Pacific Ocean) is the oldest of their vineyards with the first plantings dating to 1982. The soil in the Rincon Vineyard is shallow and composed of loam and calcareous clay. This soil type is reminiscent of the vineyards of Burgundy, particularly those in the Côte de Nuits. The shallow soil, coupled with steep hills, facilitates drainage and results in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir yields averaging less than three tons per acre. This wine sees the same élevage (or upbringing) as the Rosemary’s, so the only difference in taste comes from the vineyard itself.

- “The 2012 Chardonnay Estate, from Briam Talley’s estate’s vineyards in Arroyo Grande, is supported by gorgeous veins of graphite, crushed rocks and minerals. Read More...
An intriguing wine, the 2012 stands out for its mineral-drenched energy and length, while more typical varietal fruit notes lie in the background. Layers of fruit continue to build as the broad shoulders fill out in a Chardonnay endowed with tons of personality and pure class.“

A great introduction to Talley’s “house style” of white wine, their Estate Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from both their Rosemary and Rincon vineyard. The wine employs fermentation similar to its bigger siblings, but a shorter time in oak (9 months vs. 15 months) ensures a brighter profile.

sell their Cabernet to such prestigious wineries as Nickel & Nickel and Duckhorn. While we have been touting their reds for some time, they also have a refreshing white.

While the grapes still come from Rutherford, the vineyard is down the road. These grapes were originally supposed to go to a Napa Valley Chardonnay icon, but the tanks were already full, and they could not handle any more. The Crulls stepped up, and we're thankful for that! They decided not to go for your traditional California style of big oak and butter.

This is a cleaner style; all tank fermented, no malolactic, and aged sur lie in neutral oak barrels for 6 months. The resulting wine is rich in tropical aromas, such as pineapple and kiwi, with hints of nutmeg and green apple. It is medium-bodied, with crisp acidity, and flavors of pippin apple, fig, and pear. There is just a touch of oak to round out this wines easy-going character.

Aged in equal thirds new French oak, neutral French oak and stainless steel barrels for 11 months, this is bold and complex with an aromatic profile that immediately lifts out of the glass. Read More...
Mandarin slices and lime zest shift to baking spice, gunflint, sweet smoke and subtle vanillin with hints of almond/hazelnut, ripe peach and dried apricot. Seamless and velvet-like on the entry, the ripe stone fruit combines with citrus and a subtle chalkiness. This has great fruit density that remains elegant thanks to the presence of Santa Barbara county acidity, and finishes with laser-like focus and a hint of tart apple.
