Lucas & Lewellen
2019 Lucas & Lewellen Estate Chardonnay
White Wine from Santa Barbara, United States
This wine blends Chardonnay grapes, hand-harvested from two of the winery estate vineyards, with a small amount of Viognier to provide balance and interest. The cooler Los Alamos and Goodchild vineyards provide tropical guava and citrus aromas which combine with caramel notes and a creamy texture to enhance the lingering finish.
Wine Style: White Wine
Appellation: Santa Barbara
Winemaker: Lucas & Lewellen
In 1975 a friendship became a life-long partnership, converging on the belief in the quality of Santa Barbara. Over the next 30 years Lucas & Lewellen would acquire over 400 acres of vineyards, aiming to stay true to the region’s cool climate style. The fruit has an unusually long "hang time" on the vine, allowing it to fully develop and produce wines of distinctive character.
