Tasting notes

This wine captures the essence of what we strive for when we grow and vinify Chardonnay. The wine leads with a faint nose of reduction and flinty minerality. The tension on the palate offers an exceptionally lively wine with textural richness that moves with purpose towards a persistent finish. Rich notes of custard and lees mix with smoky notes of crushed rock and ocean spray.

Production

Vintage Notes

2018 marks the first vintage wherein our appellation Chardonnay is sourced entirely from our estate vineyards at Domaine de la Côte. Stretching out below the Memorious vineyard, Riverfall is a new Chardonnay field that flows down towards the Santa Ynez River.
