Oceano Wines Chardonnay Spanish Springs Vineyard

Oceano Wines Chardonnay Spanish Springs Vineyard

Oceano Wines is a boutique winery founded in 2016 in San Luis Obispo Coast, the newly designated AVA highlighting this cool climate wine region. This comes off the Spanish Springs Vineyard, the westernmost vineyard in the US, 1.5 miles from the Pacific, on a mix of marine shale, limestone, sandstone. This Chardonnay, off clones 809, 17, and 96, was fermented in 228L French oak barrels, and it aged in a mix of these and 500L French puncheons for 9 months. The wood is up front in this wine, with the toasted notes flesh up against the creamy lemon, green apple that fills the core. There's a welcome and necessary brace of Pacific acidity that rights this to a spiced, warming finish. A modern style Cali Chardy for drinking now.

 

“Limpid straw-yellow. Vibrant, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit, honeysuckle, fennel and quinine qualities on the incisive nose. Chewy, taut and dry on the palate, offering kaffir lime, pear skin and honeydew melon flavors that convey a suave blend of power and delicacy. Finishes very long and stony, with a hint of salinity and repeating citrus fruit and floral notes. Drink 2021-2027.” - 93 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous, January 2021.
