Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2010

Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 750ML 2010      
Sku: 4830

Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is a wine that is both vineyard specific and estate grown. Located in northern Santa Barbara County on the Santa Maria Bench, the vineyard itself is named after the owner’s eldest daughter and receives meticulous care throughout the growing season. Leaf thinning in early summer allows more sunlight into the clusters which facilitates even ripening and the development of concentrated flavors. In addition, the vineyard team limits irrigation to restrict vine vigor and focus the vine’s energy into the fruit. Green harvesting is practiced at the time of veraison, another technique which forces the vine to put all its energy into the best clusters, resulting in rich and complex wines. Finally, at harvest, the fruit is gently hand-picked by Cambria’s seasoned vineyard crew.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Aug 2012)
The 2010 Chardonnay Katherine’s Vineyard is a pretty, understated wine. Lemon, white flowers and a hint of oak are woven together nicely in a medium-bodied Chardonnay that emphasizes brightness. This Katherine’s is remarkably well-spoken and flat-out beautiful. It is one of the finest values readers will find in barrel-fermented California Chardonnay. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
