Tyler Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2015
Tyler is dedicated to producing wines of delicacy and balance, where structure and nuance are favoured above all else. The focus is exclusively on exceptional vineyard sites throughout the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley within Santa Barbara County. Within these two appellations, the unique combination of marine-based soils, transverse ranges and valleys, and cool ocean influence make this a truly wonderful place for growing pinot noir and chardonnay.
This wine is a blend of a number of Chardonnay vineyard blocks from Bien Nacido and Dierberg in Santa Maria Valley along with pieces of holdings down in the Santa Rita Hills. The wine sees less than 10% new wood and is left to rest on its lees for about a year before it is moved to tank for the last few months prior to bottling to ensure the wine's tension, elegance and precision.
Orchard fruit, baked apple, white flowers and mint notes. Amazing acidity and buckets of ripe fruit. Delicious.
