Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay

$50 Summer Release

Lemon, tart tropical fruits, flinty minerals, and fresh herbs brightly welcome the taster, sliding into a lean yet satisfying mouthfeel that uplifts the tastebuds. Our crispest style of Chardonnay, still packed with coy personality.

Chardonnay is too often thought of in a binary way. Either big and voluptuous or sleek and elegant. Kim Kardashian or Audrey Hepburn. Take your pick. But many of the best California chardonnays counterintuitively (and mysteriously) span both worlds. Like this fantastic ROAR from the Soberanes Vineyard. As rich and languorous as crème brulee, it also soars with starbursts of lemony crispness and sparks of brightness and light. And as with a good white Burgundy, there’s also a subtle earthiness here too. Something grounding. Something to hold onto. Or something that holds on to you.
