Cambria Katherine Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

92pts Wine Spectator

“Lithe and powerful, featuring a vibrant core of apple and peach pastry flavors, with dried tropical fruit accents.  Buttery midpalate, delivering a plush finish that lingers with intense spiciness. Drink now through 2024.”
-K.M., March 2020

Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is an ocean influenced, single vineyard expression of “refrigerated sunshine” in a glass – layered, elegant, distinct.

WINEMAKER NOTES

“Fresh fruit and floral aromas dominate the nose; pink grapefruit, tangerine, citrus blossom, and apple flavors are complemented by a bit of wet stone.  The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, the wine shows a balanced acidity that carries through the long finish.”
– Jill Russell, Winemaker
