The fruit for this bottling comes from our sites in the Santa Rita Hills, Santa Maria and Santa Ynez appellations. The average age of most of the vines is over 30 years old from specific parcels of Wente selection that we are lucky to access. We are pleased with this entry-level offering because it is a great introduction to the style of our wines. It will always have pretty aromas of citrus flowers and fruit notes of limes and lemons along with toasty notes from oak. On the palate it will have good structure and plenty of restraint and balance making it a very food-friendly and approachable wine.

Wine Advocate"This is our largest volume and arguably most important wine because it has wide distribution," Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman commented on this wine. "This comes from top vineyards, and it's becoming harder to keep getting those grapes." The 2017 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County has a very pretty nose of chamomile, honey oat, orange blossoms, honeycomb, pie crust, baked Golden Delicious apples, exotic spices and quince. Light to medium-bodied, it offers intense savory layers, good freshness and a long, textured finish.
