For a region known for its cool climate fruit, Santa Rita Hills appellation is HOT right now, and global warming has nothing to do with it. An amazing location with the perfect combination of soil, climate and exposure, it set the standard for the region. ABC has always made a Sanford and Benedict Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as the grapes lend themselves to our style of wine making. Unlike any other California Chardonnay. The minerality and complexity of flavors dominates this wine, a perfect choice for Chablis lovers. - Winery

Cool ocean breezes allow for a long, even ripening season, making Santa Barbara County an ideal place for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This Chardonnay is remarkably concentrated and complex.


Winemaker's Notes:

Burgundian in sensibility but with California style is one way of describing Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays - structure and restraint melded with bountiful opulence is another. In the glass, buttery brioche marries with tropical fruits in an irresistible elixir that will leave the bottle drained before you know it. Try it with turbot for a match of delicacy and richness.
