Brewer-Clifton focuses solely on the production of vineyard designated Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton have set out to put the best vineyards in Santa Barbara into a bottle. One of the oldest chardonnay sites in the Sweeney Canyon, the grapes are dry farmed in a combination of river silt and diatomaceous soil. Spearmint and ginger aromatics with flavors of dried apricot and ginger snap are present. 2,592 btls produced.

This wine is 100% from our Los Alamos estate and is a combination of clones 76, 95 and 96. The fruit was harvested by hand then gently whole-cluster pressed, cold settled overnight and transferred by gravity to barrel for fermentation in 20% new French (Damy) oak with only partial malolactic (�10%). 15.0% alcohol.

Planted by Norm and Traudl Huber and farmed by Brewer - Clifton, the soil is virtually pure sand, with the twenty-two year old vines driving deep into the earth. The wine clearly shows the crisp minerality of the soil of the vineyard.

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced: 1036 cases Released: 07.14.07 Alcohol: 15.0% This wine is 100% from our Los Alamos estate and is a combination of clones 76, 95 and 96. The fruit was harvested by hand then gently whole-cluster pressed, cold settled overnight and transferred by gravity to barrel for fermentation in 20% new French (Damy) oak with only partial malolactic (±10%). Tasting Notes: Yellow-green gold in color, this chardonnay exudes fascinating yellow, white and green aromatics of cherimoya, cactus, cassava, lime skin, yellow plum, yellow raspberry, jicama, chalk, gardenia and plantains. Other ethereal nuances drift towards agave, salt, quartz, granite, sage, anise, honey and walnut. The wine is crisp and driven on the palate finishing with a graceful weight and abundant texture.
