Sea Bed Chardonnay 2019
Much of a grape’s distinctive character arises from the soil from which it is grown. This wine is named after the ancient seabed of the Edna Valley, presenting calcium-rich marine sediment from tiny shells deposited on the ancient estuary to calcareous limestone soils. The Chardonnay grapes thrive in these soils, producing a wine with depth and minerality as well as a crispness from the cool coastal climate. We preserve these natural characteristics by limiting the wine’s exposure to oak barrels. This new Chardonnay to the Tolosa lineup is a Wine Club exclusive and a delicacy for summer.
