Diatom Katherine's Chardonnay 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Sourced from forty-eight-year-old, self-rooted vines in the north west corner of Cambria’s Santa Maria Estate. The 2017 Katherine’s parcel is rooted in gravelly loam soils heavily influenced by the pronounced maritime influence of the nearby Pacific. In the cellar the fermentation is completed at a very low temperature in small stainless-steel tanks, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit ensure precision and focus. Diatom is motivated by the pursuit of subtraction and refinement. It is the polishing of a grain of rice until one has reached its ultimate inner core. Our Sta. Rita Hills marine landscape is stark and so are the wines of its provenance. We strive for a recognition of place with as little disturbance, distraction or interference as possible. The resulting wines have a sense of transparency and a purity of intent and purpose
