Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2012

Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 750ml 2012     
Sku: 14297

Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is a wine that is both vineyard specific and estate grown. Located in northern Santa Barbara County on the Santa Maria Bench, the vineyard itself is named after the owner’s eldest daughter and receives meticulous care throughout the growing season. Leaf thinning in early summer allows more sunlight into the clusters which facilitates even ripening and the development of concentrated flavors. In addition, the vineyard team limits irrigation to restrict vine vigor and focus the vine’s energy into the fruit. Green harvesting is practiced at the time of veraison, another technique which forces the vine to put all its energy into the best clusters, resulting in rich and complex wines. Finally, at harvest, the fruit is gently hand-picked by Cambria’s seasoned vineyard crew.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2014)
Leading off the three Chardonnay?s, the 2012 Katherine?s Vineyard offers beautiful flint-like minerality to go with stone fruits, white flowers, vanilla curd and brioche on the nose. Medium-bodied, tight, fresh and elegant, it?s a superb value to enjoy over the coming couple of years.

Wine maker notes
Winemaker Notes - Our 2012 Katherine's Chardonnay shows the concentration and character of this superb vintage. The nose is deeply aromatic with apples, peaches, lime blossoms and vanilla. The palate is intense and powerful, yet surprisingly elegant and nuanced.
