Scar of the Sea 2018 Chard Old Vines
Scar of the Sea Chardonnay "Old Vines, 1973 Plantings", Santa Barbara County 2018
Ripe, creamy, complex and distinctive, the nose of this notably underpriced beauty delivers
a perfume of dried golden mulberry, golden fig, baked apple, white peach tart, honey-drenched pistachio, nutmeg and vanilla wafer scents in near ideal harmony. All those elements are reprised on the palate, yet they gain in vitality and food-worthiness as the more piquant fruit notes take center-stage. Holding its razor-edged balance between zesty refreshment and creamy richness through a lingering finish, this delicious wine will be a great companion to richly sauced fish or fowl and to many another culinary treat. 700 cases made.
