Tasting Notes

A very fresh, bright, floral, crisp Chard, perfect for summer sipping. Nice weight and richness on the palete but with zesty acidity and mineral tones. Very minimal oak influence here. Fantastic value for money! A lovely everyday "house" Chardonnay or crowd pleasing party wine. Delicious! (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer)

    Chardonnay seems to be one of the most divisive grapes on the market today, and I regularly have customers tell me they don't like it because of how buttery and oaked it is. While there are those Chards out there, it can also fall on the exact opposite end of the spectrum. The Luuma is a wonderful example of how bright and complex the grape can be. Sourcing fruit from Scribe, the wine only sees 20% oak, 10% of which is new. The rest is aged in stainless steel, making for a Chardonnay with notes of bright green apple, lemon, tropical pineapple, and white flowers. This is a perfect summer wine that regular chardonnay drinkers will love, and might change some minds if you're willing to give it a try!

    What a steal!! Luuma tastes like the best of the coolest parts of Sonoma Coast: ripping acidity, soft texture with just a slight buffer of creaminess, and loads of white rock minerality. Lovers of Scribe, Flowers, Wayfarer, and Fort Ross Seaview Chardonnay can find a bright, delightful everyday alternative in this gem. Buy it now!

    This is a delicious Sonoma Coast Chardonnay made by 4th generation California farmers, the Mariana brothers. They use only 10% new oak, and 15% malolactic fermentation, for the brightest, purest expression of the excellent Sonoma Coast terroir. Soft citrus, stone fruit, just-there white flowers, a creamy texture from lees aging, and a long bright finish.

    A fun easygoing and fresh style that has plenty of weight and texture but stays clean and steely on the finish. I love these bright, palate cleansing styles of white for parties, picnics and sipping on the patio.

    If you’re looking for a fun and interesting wine that doesn’t fall neatly into any category than this is the wine for you. The 2017 Luuma Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a party in a glass. Coming in at 12.5% it has an aromatic profile and texture of a Grenache blanc or even a Gewurztraminer. I get loads of tropical fruit with mixed with honeysuckle and Jasmin flower. If you’re a Chardonnay lover I promise this will still be up your alley. The 17 is very fresh, clean and bright with no apparent oak. Oh and the best part… Scribe winery makes it and I can afford it!
