The grapes named in this blend are such a surprise, one might think theyre drinking a classic southern burgundy chardonnay, rather than a blend of rhone whites from Santa Barbara County! Expertly made (with maximal restriction… this is hands-off wine dude!) Fully certified organic fruit, hand harvested, natural fermentation, neutral oak aging, and genuinely scrumptious Complex, racy, lean but textured. This wine is evertything!
