Sweet peachy fruit with acidity creeping through, creamy lemon finish with nice acidity. Pretty.

Had with grilled trout Mar 2017. A touch of butter, but not heavy. Slight tart with light fruit. Very mild oak. Very good.

2011 good. light on the oak, good minerality and acid. Atypical Chard, more in a European style, which we like.

I really like Zaca Mesa vineyard. This Chardonnay is a mixed steel/oak barrel. Something special from this Santa Barbara county vineyard. Foxen Canyon road.
