The Barden 2015 Chardonnay was produced from two prestigious vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills - La Encantada and La Rinconada. Here, the climate is especially cool, allowing the grapes to steadily ripen with balanced acidity and concentrated fruit flavors and aromas.

This wine is very complex on the nose with slightly sweet tropical fruit notes and layers of sweet butter, toast and cream. On the palate, this Chardonnay takes a balanced approach between fruit and minerality with nuances of earthiness and crisp white pear, a ready texture, and high-toned nerviness. A rich, expansive wine with fresh, energetic acidity and rounded fruit flavors, this Chardonnay is an excellent new offering from Doug Margerum.
