Winery Notes:

A single clone (Hyde) bottling sourced from a small, sandy parcel within 3D Vineyard along Santos Road.  Fermentation at very low temperature in small stainless steel tanks, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit ensure precision and focus.

From the 3D Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, the 2017 Chardonnay Santos Road offers light gold color and a beautifully classic (almost reserved compared to the other releases here) perfume of stone fruits, salted citrus, tangerine, leafy herbs, and ample minerality. It’s a salty, medium-bodied effort that blossoms with time in the glass and has good acidity, impeccable balanced, and a great finish. Classic, balanced, and lengthy are the buzzwords here and it’s another rock star effort readers should snatch up.
