Pure, balanced and generous. The nose is packed with stone fruit, fig, honey, spice and red apples. The palate is both crisp and concentrate with a mineral finish.
We aged this Chardonnay in a combination of stainless steel and French and American oak for nine months. The lees were stirred weekly to add texture, body and aromatics.
Byron’s history is inextricably woven into the fabric of Santa Barbara County. Our estate vineyard is the site of the region’s first commercial vineyard, planted in 1964 by Uriel Nielson. For the past two decades our trials and experiments on clones, rootstocks and trellising have helped establish cool-climate farming protocols throughout California’s coastal winegrowing regions. Today, we produce renowned Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from our estate and other marquee vineyards in Santa Barbara County.
Among California’s coolest AVAs, Santa Barbara County enjoys one of the world’s longest growing seasons. The region’s terroir is defined by well-drained soils and a Pacific maritime climate that is fresh, arid and windy.
