Brewer Clifton 2008 “Sea smoke” Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills

This stunning vineyard (mostly planted to Pinot Noir) offers up the amazing fruit that went into the 2008 release! On the nose I encountered some tangerine and lemon custard. The wine’s body is round and intense, I would say creamy but assertive with flavors of candied orange and luscious apricots. This wine is totally dry, but very flavorful and not as sweet as my description might portray. 3,456 bottles produced or 288 cases!
