ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "Never content to stay put, Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton continue to push the envelope on quality in the Sta. Rita Hills. Read More...
Over the years, Brewer and Clifton have had an enormous impact on the region, both directly and indirectly, in giving advice to newly arrived owners and developing a number of vineyards they no longer farm. The most recent development at Brewer-Clifton is a move towards working exclusively with vineyards they themselves farm, a decision that is the natural closing of a circle that started in 2011, when the winery began to focus exclusively on vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills. As these notes show, the 2012s are pretty special across the board. Readers will note the addition of a few vineyards to the lineup, including Acin and Hapgood. The Chardonnays are rich and textured in style, with considerable transparency and impeccable balance. All of the Brewer-Clifton Pinots are made with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak."

"A more mineral and floral expression of Chardonnay emerges from the 2012 Chardonnay Machado. Lemon oil, white flowers and slate are some of the nuances that linger on the mid-weight, reserved finish. Drinking window: 2014 - 2019."

SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL
Item: #275370
Bottle Size:750ml
$17.99
Quantity

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 Read More...
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.

individual characters. They don’t skimp on fruit or texture, yet they also have plenty of earthy, savory characteristics to go with that core of sweet fruit that California provides. In addition, they represent superb values!

"Starting off the Pinot Noirs, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is an outstanding effort that offers juicy black cherries, spice, earth and ground herbs in its sweetly fruited, rounded and supple style. There’s good concentration here, and it opens up nicely in the glass. Already delicious, it will thrill over the coming 5-7 years."

Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak, Rita's Crown, and Radian), White Hill highlights the unique salinity that comes through in the ancient soils of Santa Rita Hills. The style of this wine will always be racier and predominately neutral barrel fermentation. Its profile is that of mineral, yellow peach, fresh Asian pear, salinity, linen, candied ginger, and lavender cream.

$23.95

This wine is 100% from Melville's Sta. Rita Hills estate and is a combination of clones 4, 76, 95, and selections Mount Eden, Hanzell and Wente. It is their core Chardonnay and comes Read More...
predominantly from their west side vineyards that have several different types of sandy soils. Because the west side receives the brunt of brutal ocean-winds and has only poor soils, we feel this Chardonnay always captures the vibrancy, minerality and concentrated flavors that are hallmarks of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "Hold onto your hats, as these latest releases from Chad Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer are off-the-charts good!"

"The 2013 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills is a smoking effort that represent a fabulous value in Chardonnay. Made in a pure, clean style, it was barrel-fermented and aged 8 months in neutral oak. It gives up serious notes of lemon, lime peel, tinges of wild herbs and salty minerality to go with a medium-bodied, balanced and elegant profile on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s superb now, but will also age nicely for 3-4 years."

ANTONIO GALLONI 90 POINTS - "Lemon oil and white flowers are some of the notes that resonate in the 2012 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills. The combination of bright flavors, pulsating acidity and textural breadth is highly appealing. All the elements fall into place in an impeccable Chardonnay to drink over the next handful of years."
MELVILLE 13 PN BLOCK M

Block M is a wind swept mesa on Melville's western parcel adjacent to our Terraces block. Sitting atop a sun exposed mesa with several feet of botella clay soil, the extremity of Read More...
Block M is enhanced by the gravitational pull on three exposed sides forcing the roots to search deeper for sustenance. Block M is made up of equal amounts of clones 114 and 115. The lesser known 114 is lush, velvety and textural with an elegantly pliant internal core, while clone 115 delivers fruit at a higher pitch coupled with a more structurally pronounced personality. The marriage of these complementary components is what renders Melville's Block M bottling so complete. 20% of the fruit was gently destemmed with 80% remaining as whole clusters.

Dark ruby red in color, intoxicating aromatics of nutmeg, grilled beef fat, fig and cherry cola come through initially. Intense notes of ripe persimmon, salt caramel, raw sugar cane and tamarind weave alongside floral components of pink jasmine and magnolia. The wine boasts not only tremendous weight and drive but also excellent clarity and precision. Only 609 cases were produced.

drainage issues. This 4.9 acre block is planted on clay loam and limestone soils wrapping 120° around Carrie’s block. Five clones: Swan, Mount Eden, 115, 667 and 777, form a unique combination of old California Selections and newer dijonnaise clonal material.

With a shiny garnet hue, herbaceous and spicy aromas of fresh mint, juniper, clove and dried oregano dominate initially while dark nuances of cocoa powder, chipotle, smoked apple wood and graham cracker linger in the background. The palate impression is lively with a burst of fresh acidity bringing both elegance and structure to the wine’s savory and intense finish. Only 557 cases produced.

preparation where the utmost attention is given to the raw ingredients which must be handled with neither compromise nor flaw.

Tasting Notes: The 2014 Inox is loaded with crisp and vibrant nuances of hard lemon candy, green apple skin and rock salt. Tropical fruit elements of pineapple rind, kiwi, honeydew melon and lime weave alongside denser components of oyster liquor, citrus oil and macadamias. Focused and vivacious on the palate, with a salivating component that adds significant weight and structure.
