2020 Sarmento Vineyard Chardonnay
Santa Lucia Highlands
We have long admired wines crafted from the Sarmento Vineyard and in 2020 were delighted to have the chance to produce a Chardonnay from it. This wine is a gorgeous balance of bright fruit and toasty notes imparted by aging in French oak barrels.
It opens with notes of Meyer lemon, pineapple, butterscotch and vanilla that develop into mouthwatering flavors accented with a hint of honey and hazelnut. The finish is long, creamy and leaves you wanting another sip.
With such a wide spectrum of flavors this wine will pair with a variety of different foods. One of our favorite pairings is crab melts or buttery popcorn and a movie.
