V.2018 Here and Heaven
Chardonnay, John Sebastiano Vineyard, Sta. Rita Hills
The 2018 “Here and Heaven” Chardonnay comes from two vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This wine is made mostly from the Wente #43 clone from the John Sebastiano Vineyard, located on the extreme eastern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, where prevailing ocean winds push over rolling hillsides. Clones 96 and 76 come to us from the western side of the AVA, at the Rancho Santa Rita Vineyard. The Rancho Santa Rita grapes give the wine a distinct focused citrus acidity.
