Zotovich 2018 Chardonnay "Zoto", Sta. Rita Hills
The Sta Rita Hills are dominated by the flavors of Burgundy; Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. From our flagship Chardonnay, we wish to display all the best aspects of our unique little vineyard. The nose offers initial aromatics of stonefruits and seashells followed by spiced apples and the light sweetness of ripe pineapple. A full palate of Asian pear with bright acidity leads to the finish showcasing our hallmark maritime salinity. This Chardonnay ages in 100% French oak, 25% new, for 18 months.
