2015 Prytania Santa Barbara County Chardonnay

Santa Barbara County's uniquely positioned mountain ranges act as a funnel for the cooling maritime influences of the Pacific. This viticultural area has many distinct microclimates that allow for acidity and pure flavors to develop naturally and gradually, ideal ripening conditions for Chardonnay. As a result, exuberant flavors of citrus and tropical fruit take center stage, while elevated acidity, the trademark of a cool growing region, lends energy and focus.
