Winemaker Notes
Named for Proprietor Bill Foley’s mother, our 2014 Zoula Nunn is the boldest of our black label series and a classic example of a California-style Chardonnay. Beautiful white flower and vanilla bean are delightfully fragrant on the nose. The palate is rich with ripe pineapple fruit and a touch of sweetness. A creamy lemon curd texture evolves into soothing impressions of vanilla and maple sugar on the finish.

Production Notes
At Lincourt, we believe that a vibrant, living environment has a positive effect on the health of the vines and the character and quality of the wines. To ensure the vitality of our land and the authenticity of our wines, we use sustainable methods in all of our farming, winemaking and business practices. The 2014 vintage was another solid year in the Sta. Rita Hills. It was our third consecutive abundant vintage with high quality fruit and large yields. With the earliest bud break on record and such a warm growing season, this was the earliest harvest to date. Conditions remained ideal from bloom to set only minimally burdened by the typical afternoon winds that sweep through Sta. Rita Hills.
Vineyard Notes
As part of the original Spanish Land Grant, Rancho Santa Rosa is one of Santa Barbara’s most historic properties. This beautiful south-facing hillside climbs from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level. It features 59 individual microblocks delineated by terroir, soil type, elevation, grade and exposure to the maritime winds off the Pacific Ocean. The grapes were gently wholecluster pressed and transferred to tank after harvest. Regular stirring of the lees imparted additional viscosity and complexity. The wine was aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, 75% of which were new.
