The 2021 Carol Ann Chardonnay opens with enticing aromas of toasted hazelnut and lime flower, with accents of citrus fruit. On the palate, this wine has balanced lemon fruit notes, crisp acidity, and racy minerality, making it the perfect food-friendly Chardonnay. Carol Ann pairs beautifully with halibut crudo in citrus ponzu.


As part of the original Spanish Land Grant, Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard is one of Santa Barbara’s most historic properties. This south-facing hillside climbs from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level. It features 59 individual micro-blocks delineated by terroir, soil type, elevation, grade and exposure to the maritime winds off the Pacific Ocean. The grapes were gently whole cluster pressed and transferred to stainless steel tank after harvest. Regular stirring of the lees imparted additional viscosity and complexity. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% new.


The 2021 vintage was marked by a cooler and longer growing season, which provided fruit of wonderful concentration. The moderate weather throughout the year in the Sta. Rita Hills provided incredible fruit quality and balanced acid levels. Harvest was completed on October 23, 2021.
