2019 SRH Chardonnay

2019 SRH Chardonnay
Sta. Rita Hills

The SRH Chardonnay is composed of six different Chardonnay clones grown on eight lots across the Lafond Vineyard. Each clone has distinct characteristics, and each lot consists of different types of soils.

Winemaker Bruce McGuire creates an incredible depth of flavor by layering the unique characteristics found in each clone. Finally, this wine undergoes barrel aging before it is ready to tell its complex story.

Tasting Notes
The 2019 SRH Chardonnay is pale yellow in color. Aromas of honeysuckle, apple blossom and lemon zest are followed by soft accents of vanilla. Apricot and honeydew flavors flow across the palate, with lightly toasted oak, cool minerality and a lingering citrus note adding texture and depth. This wine is medium-bodied with a clean, persistent finish.
