2013 Chardonnay, Bald Mountain Vineyard, Ben Lomond Mountain

Price: $32.00

Grown at 1100’ elevation in Bonny Doon on a wide sandstone bench, this vintage clearly showcases this vineyard’s totally unique sandstone terroir and bristling acidity.  Lean and aromatic bordering on Chablisian, with a bright acid backbone supporting a lightly-toasted core of creme brûlée, macadamia nut and green apple.  The signature sandy minerality of this one-of-a-kind vineyard is at the forefront of both the aromatics and the flavor profile, presenting as a distinctive saline edge, like standing at the edge of a fog bank on a sunny day.

The vineyard lies in a tiny sub-appellation of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, known as Ben Lomond Mountain.
