    The fruit is the star of this wine and here it shines! Greg Brewer uses four sites for this wine that are also bottled separately: 3D, Machado, Acin, and Hapgood vineyards. All these sites are well situated and are planted to a variety of important clones. The result is a wine of exceptional finesse and complexity. To maintain the purity of fruit, Greg employs only neutral oak barrels which allows for a creamier texture while avoiding any oak flavors. Greg Brewer's Sta. Rita Hills appellation Chardonnay may be one of the best introductions to the region and the producer. We are now able to offer it at an "end of vintage" price making this quite possibly the best Chardonnay buy in the entire store.

    Another absolute benchmark Chardonnay from acclaimed winemaker, Greg Brewer. Very reflective of his style, perfectly ripe fruit, powerful, focused palate, minimal oak and vibrant, racy acidity. Bursting with golden stone fruit, lemon curd, pie crust, ocean spray salinity and lingering mineral underpinnings. It's rich and flavorful but bright and zesty all at once. A perfectly judged wine that is entirely transparent and delicious. Another great addition to Greg's Brewer's significant body of work that has already cemented him as once of Santa Barbara's all-time great winemakers.

    This is a textbook appellation-level expression of both the region and producer. Candied citrus rind, honeydew melon, white rose, sourdough, and chalk combine with hints of smokiness and toasted grain from the reductive winemaking style (no new oak used…only neutral barrels) on the nose. Zesty, intensely focused, and flavor-packed with brisk acidity, it is fabulous now, but will clearly age beautifully. A marriage of California coastal sunshine through a Chablis-like winemaking lens.
