2015 / Chardonnay

2015 Hilliard Bruce Chardonnay

The Hilliard Bruce Vineyard is Landmark’s southernmost source for Chardonnay. Located on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation in Santa Barbara County and planted to clones 76 and 96 Chardonnay, its proximity to the ocean gives a definite cool-climate character to this wine. The vineyard’s well-drained sandy silt soils and the region’s long growing season give an added intensity and complexity that is this region’s hallmark.

TASTING NOTES

Pale lemon yellow, with day-bright silver highlights. Aromas of bright lemon, green apple, vanilla and toasty oak. The palate is crisp, clean and bright with ripe lemon, yellow apple, and lemongrass on the entry, met with a little crushed stone texture on the crisp mid- palate and a touch of buttered toast and balanced oak complexing the long textured finish. The 2015 Hilliard Bruce Chardonnay is a crisp chardonnay that reflects its cool climate roots and just a touch of richness.


FOOD PAIRINGS

Crisp, clean and textured, try it with a fillet of sole, garnished with a lemon, caper and wine sauce, or a lightly seasoned calamari fritti with a squeeze of lemon.
