Brewer Clifton Chardonnay 2012
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
A ripe, expressive style, with citrus and green apple notes that turn a bit pithy on the finish, where the flavors lose focus. Drink now through 2019. 1,100 cases made.
Starting first with the Chardonnays, the 2012 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills is a fresh, lively, slightly racy effort that offers nice apple, citrus, white flowers and tinges of brioche in its medium-bodied, mid-weight and straightforward profile. I like the freshness here, but would love additional concentration and depth.
