Firestone Vineyard Chardonnay California Discoveries 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Bright straw yellow in color, the California Chardonnay exhibits aromas of apple, pear, melon, lemon and honey with slight caramel undertones from the oak aging. On the palate, moderate acidity balances creamy notes of ripe pears, melons and caramel, with a bright and lingering finish of citrus and minerals.

Founded in 1972 by father and son, Leonard and Brooks Firestone, Firestone Vineyard has enjoyed 35 years of family stewardship. Recently, so that they might concentrate on their burgeoning beer business and smaller Curtis Winery, the Firestone family decided to sell their iconic winery. In doing so, they turned to fellow Santa Barbara vintner Bill Foley (Foley Estates Vineyard and Winery, Lincourt Vineyards) as the logical next shepherd for the famous property. As the Firestone’s identified earlier on, Bill, too, recognized Santa Barbara County as the ideal location for the production of world class wines. Bill has vowed to continue the Firestone tradition in striving for the very best in vineyard management and cutting edge winemaking discipline. The vineyard focuses on optimal physiological balance in the vines yielding wines that are brightly flavored, crisp and delicious. Estate Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah vineyards are located on a series of mesas that have gravelly sub-soils, ideally oriented for perfect exposure. The Firestone Vineyard tasting room offers regular winery tours, delicious wines to sample and an idyllic setting for al fresco picnics. Visit the “new” Firestone Vineyard and experience the vision of hospitality that is shared by Bill Foley and the Firestone Family! Read less
