Brewer Clifton, Santa Rita Hills, California, Chardonnay, 2016

$20.00

Winemaker Notes: With the goal of expressing a comprehensive expression of the appellation, we selected four unique vineyard sites to create this Sta. Rita Hills bottling. This blend is comprised of 3D, Machado, Acin and Hapgood vineyards. While each lot is handled separately and in a completely uniform fashion in the winery, each contributes vastly different expressions which ultimately harmonize in the finished wine.

Food Pairings: Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Description

About: While grounded in traditional ideals matched with extensive studies in Europe, the wines at Brewer-Clifton do not feel the necessity to be fettered by them. Instead, the vintners elect to employ the most sincere and vulnerable wine production practices so as to reinterpret classicism within the aesthetic of the Sta. Rita Hills. They do not strive to emulate any other producer or any other region as they follow their own pursuit. Brewer-Clifton has espoused itself to the appellation and will continue to do everything possible display and celebrate it in as honest and impactful manner possible. A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on. The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
