Aromas of pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry. Flavors of dried fig, white truffle and ripe cherry. Rooibos tea and savory. This blend is comprised of 3D, Machado, Acin and Hapgood vineyards. Only neutral barrels are employed. We strive for whole cluster fermentation. We farm with a focus of ripening the stems alongside the fruit, allowing the cluster to be in harmony. Working with the stems allows for wines that are structured, earthy and balanced with our beautiful SRH fruit.

Intense flavors of honeydew melon and pear tart dominate this supple white. The richly spiced finish shows some pastry notes.

The 2016 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills offers up a bright bouquet of honeyed citrus, preserved lemon, apple and beeswax, framed by a touch of nutmeg-like leesiness. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with lovely glossy texture underpinned by lots of cut, finishing with good length and grip. This is one of Brewer-Clifton's largest cuvées, and it's keenly priced too.
