Samuel Louis Smith, Chardonnay, Spear Vineyard, Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, California 2019
The Samuel Louis Smith Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay is pale gold and light-medium bodied. Aromas of pineapple, lemon zest, jasmine, and vanilla bean are supported by flavors of lemon meringue and toasted brioche. While aromatically floral and fruit-focused, it is linear and acid-driven on the palate, balancing California fruit purity and Old world tension.
