Chardonnay, Lo-Fi Wines 2019 £30

A joint project of two close friends to make wine with minimal interventions in the Santa Barbara region of California. Mike and Craig work with cool climate grapes such as Cab Franc, Pinot, Chardonnay, Chenin and Gamay. The style of winemaking is straightforward -usually whole cluster native ferments.

Quite an elegant delicately buttery style of Chardonnay. Not about oak, just nice mouth filling texture with a good line of citrus keeping the wine lifted.
