Fess Parker Chardonnay Santa Barbara County Select Cuvée 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 93 EDITORS CHOICE Run, don't walk to buy up cases of this beautiful, wellpriced Chardonnay. It's rich and sumptuous in vanilla oak and lees-inspired flavors of pineapples, pears and lime tart. Wine Tasting Notes This wine provides the consumer with a classic Santa Barbara County Chardonnay experience at an excellent value. Partially barrel fermented and aged in a combination of French and American oak for 8 months, citrus and melon aromas predominate on the nose. Green apple, grapefruit and mild pear notes make for a refreshing, crisp sensation on the palate. This wine is crafted in a very approachable style while maintaining excellent body - a perfect by-the-glass choice.

Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess’ daughter, Ashley explains, “ Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small. “The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

This wine expresses a bright nose of guava, wet stone, tropical fruit, fugi apple and lemon cream. Apple, melon, pear, and citrus notes make for a refreshing, crisp sensation on the palate.
