2017 Scar of the Sea Chardonnay Seven Leagues - Santa Maria Valley, California
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
Scar Of The Sea, run by husband-and-wife duo Mikey and Gina Giugni, works closely with a number of growers in Santa Barbara County, and are truly dedicated to a sense of place with an eye towards natural practices. Loved by critics and amateurs alike, it is an excellent example of what chardonnay can do in the region: struck stone, white flowers and ripe pineapple all play on the complex nose, followed by a lemon-zest snap on the palate with subtle pastry-dough and sea salt notes on the finish. This bottle is in that perfect sweet spot between deserving your singular attention and having the potential to take the right meal to the level of memorable. In the case of the latter, haddock served with herbed butter would be a great choice.
