2016 Lagom Chardonnay
The wine is rich and supple with great acidity and purity that keeps the wine fresh. Spanish Springs Vineyard lies west of the Edna Valley south of San Luis Obispo. At less than two miles from the Pacific Ocean it is the first vineyard you encounter as you head east out of Pismo Beach. Protected by hills that run parallel to the coast, Spanish Springs enjoys a perfect mix of cool marine influence and sunshine to make for optimal maturity over a long steady growing season. Loamy topsoil over layers of calcareous shale create a wine that is loaded with stone fruits, melon, and tropical notes entwined with layers of mineral and flint. Long slow fermentation in barrel utilizing native yeasts, complete malo-lactic fermentation, and bottling unfiltered allow for a gorgeous expression of the varietal and place that will impress young and continue to develop over the next 5 to 7 years.
