    This Chardonnay is incredibly fresh! My immediate thought was how well this wine would complement a light spring or summer supper. The wine gives vibrant notes of citrus fruits, green plums, lime leaves, orange blossom, and finishes with a crisp touch of salty minerality. This wine has me longing for the warmer weather to come, and will be the perfect companion for all of your favorite outdoor activities!

    The Bar M from Diatom is not only a brilliant chard, but also a steal considering it's the price that it is. If you don't like that typical "California style" then the Bar M may be a wine that will get you to like chardonnay from California. Packed with so many brilliant flavors like several stone fruit, lime, pear, and green apple, I think I just found my new sipper for the upcoming warmer months. Truly a delight!

    The most inspired part of Greg Brewer's wine making philosophy is simplicity. His goal is to capture the purity of the fruit without any adornment. It's an approach that embodies traditional wine making with an emphasis on precision and restraint. Greg will reference the finest sushi chefs when he describes his approach to creating wine. The vineyards are planted in ancient marine sediment unique to the western Sta. Rita Hills. The saline quality adds a savoriness to the succulent citrus fruit profile. The Bar-M personifies purity of fruit like few others. This is another example of why Greg is so revered as one of the masters of Chardonnay and the Sta. Rita Hills soils.

    Wow! This is an utterly delicious, thirst quenching bottle of wine from Santa Barbara legend, Greg Brewer. Diatom is a range of wines made from some of his favorite single vineyards across the region. The premise of the brand is to craft the wines to be as transparent and terroir driven as possible by eschewing any new oak and trying to keep the wines as focused and pure as possible. This is simply bursting with ripe citrus, yellow stone fruits, quince and intense stony minerality. A wine with lovely texture on the palate and a beautifully judged acid line that leaves a mount-watering zest on the palate. Clearly the work of a master craftsman. I'm very excited to be ale to offer this fantastic bottle at a national low price that is too good to show. This might just be your new house favorite...my fridge is already stocked!
    Top Value!
