Joy Fantastic Chardonnay, Sta Rita Hills, California
- Bottle Size
- Wine Type
Peter Hunken and Amy Christine MW, husband and wife and the team behind the famous Holus Bolus wines, had long craved for their own vineyard in California. The dream came true in 2016 with the first harvest of their “The Joy Fantastic” plot.
Sourced from the top 1-acre block of the vineyard where the soils are very thin and rich in diatomaceous earth, this Chardonnay is a mix of racy acidity and bright, vibrant texture. Aged for 11 months in neutral French barrels, it is a tropical, luscious and elegant journey in the mouth. The wine combines a play of preserved lemon, stone fruit, fruit salad, herbs, vanilla, lychee and some bitterness which freshens up the palate. A superb example of Chardonnay from the Sta Rita Hills in Santa Barbara, central California.
