Cambria Katherine's Vineyard 2020 (USA: CA - Santa Maria Valley) (ID# 3244)

Name Cambria Katherine's Vineyard 2020 (ID# 3244)
Varietal Chardonnay
Region USA: CA - Santa Maria Valley
Notes "The 2020 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard is bright and wonderfully saline, with plenty of mineral and savory accents. Citrus peel, mint, white pepper, chalk and dried flowers open nicely with a bit of time. There's terrific energy and plenty of cut." "Dried lime peel, seared lemon pith, white flower and a hint of grass show on the nose of this bottling. There’s an earthy, crushed rock element to the palate, where dried apple and herb flavors also arise." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"The 2020 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard is terrific and shockingly good given the quantities produced. Burgundian-like aromas of stone fruits, chalky minerality, honeyed flowers, and brioche all define the nose, and it's medium-bodied, with a supple, rounded texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish." (Jeb Dunnuck) "Supple and creamy, with notes of nutmeg and toasted, salted hazelnut that complement lemon curd, fresh peach and crisp Fuji apple flavors." (Wine Spectator)
