ALMA ROSA CHARDONNAY STA. BARBARA

ALMA ROSA CHARDONNAY STA. BARBARA Image

Opens up in the glass with aromas of lemon zest and lychee, complemented by fresh earth and flinty minerality. On the palate, it displays a scintillating acidity, highlighting the lemon curd character. Finishes clean and crisp.
The mild Spring of 2016 led to even fruit set and average yields. Late Summer conditions showed the effects of almost five years of drought conditions on the canopy, which started yellowing early from salt accumulation in the soils not rinsed by heavy Winter rains. The only heat spell with warm nights came during harvest.
