Arnot-Roberts Chardonnay 'Trout Gulch' Santa Cruz Mountains 2015
Planted nearly 40 years ago, ‘Trout Gulch’ sits 800 feet above sea level, just four miles away from the Pacific Ocean. Cool marine breezes and sandy loam soils keep grapes balanced and bright, leading to a final wine full of vibrant acidity and pronounced salinity. The 2015 vintage in Santa Cruz came early, with low yields giving way to quality, concentrated fruit. Thirst quenching and bright, we can’t get enough of this crazy balanced New World Chard.
