From the prestigious Top Cream Section of Babcock’s Estate Vineyard (planted 30 years ago) comes this incredible Chardonnay. Called Top Cream from the fact that the top soil is only 2 to 3 feet deep above an impervious layer of sandstone, the vineyard governs the vigor and morphology of the Chardonnay vines that grow within. The diatomaceous (crumbling, powdery) sandy loam presence from this vineyard in the heart of the heralded Sta. Rita Hills AVA is unreal. A tapioca pudding and mineral nose melds perfectly with its succulent, creamy flavor. 100% Chardonnay. Definitely Burgundian in nature, this premier wine will definitely improve with age. Pair with Chilean Sea Bass, Chicken (lemon or Buerre Blanc sauces) or any medium textured meat.
