2019 Cambria 'Katherine's Vineyard' Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley
Winemaker Notes: Fresh fruit and oral aromas dominate the nose and palate; white peach, lemon zest, pear, Granny Smith apple and citrus blossoms. The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, the wine shows a balanced acidity that carries through in the long finish.
Vinous - "The 2019 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard is fabulous. Rich and ample, the Katherine's offers striking dimension to play off its mid-weight structure. Lemon confit, tangerine oil, spice and tropical accents all meld together effortlessly. The Katherine's is a blend of various parcels and clones across the estate. This classic Santa Maria Chardonnay hits all the right notes."
Wine Enthusiast - "Winemaker Jill Russell does wonders with this widely available wine. Aromas of Meyer lemon and sea salt ride over roasted peach on the nose, leading into pan-seared apple, more salt and a touch of warm butter on the palate. Editors’ Choice."
Wine Spectator - "Plush and well-spiced, with a creamy texture to the ripe apple and peach pastry flavors. The finish is loaded with buttered toast accents that glide across the palate. Drink now through 2024. 52,000 cases made."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2019 Cambria Estate Winery Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay is layered and smooth on the palate. This wine shows up with aromas and flavors of dried spices, ripe apples, and hints of oak. Enjoy it with grilled halibut."
