LAFOND 2012 CHARDONNAY SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

Lafond is located in the Santa Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County, an ideal environment for growing intensely flavored, full-bodied Chardonnay. This AVA is distinguished by a very cool and long growing season created by a convergence of unusual geography in this part of California. It is not uncommon to see high scores given to Chardonnays that are more modest in pricepoint from this region. A blend of fruit from two neighboring vineyards to Lafond, the 2010 Chardonnay "SRH" is Winemaker Bruce McGuire's selection to showcase the ripe, concentrated Chardonnay for which the Santa Rita Hills AVA is known.

Lafond's new blocks of Chardonnay are now in production, and have four additional clones along with their original Wente clone, which was first planted over 25 years ago. The new clones add to the complexity of the wineand introduce subtle flavors which add to its enjoyment and underline the remarkable qualities of the Santa Rita Hills 'terroir'.
The 2012 La Fond is a beautiful pale yellow color. Aromas of lemon meringue, melon tones, and honeysuckle. A full-bodied chard that is concentrated and packs a fantastic fresh finish.
