2017 Haliotide, Stolo Vineyard Blanc de Blancs Late Disgorged, San Luis Obispo Coast 1x75cl

RP94
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage production: 40 cases Disgorged: February 2024 When we heard about a Sparkling Wine producer from the very edges of the San Luis Obispo coastline, we just had to find... out. We met owners Nicole and Lucas at their boutique winery in the gorgeous hills just south of Paso. Nicole's winemaking experience of working at cooler-climate coastal sites, and Lucas's knowledge as one of Paso's most in-demand vineyard managers, makes them the dream team. Inspired by the great cuvées of Champagne, they adopted more of a 'Grower Champagne' approach by focusing on two exceptional vineyards (Stolo and Topotero) just a couple of miles from the ocean. This bracing environment produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir full of tension and acidity, but it's the California sunshine that gives them an extra dimension. Nicole and Lucas make three cuvées: the Extra-Brut Rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir from Topotero and given 30 months tirage; a razor-sharp Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay from Stolo) that sees 4 years on its lees; and a beautifully-textured BdB Late-Disgorgement that sees around 6.5 years tirage. All wines are barrel-fermented, and the results are pure class. For us, they would sit admirably alongside some of the world's top Fizz, but it's more telling that every winemaker we spoke with was on Haliotide's allocation list (waiting list, for a few!), and ranked the wines as the best Sparkling Wines of North America. With just a couple of hundred cases made, there's only one course-of action: reserve some bottles now and find out for yourself why the hype is more than justified!

2019 Bevan Cellars, Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 1x75cl

Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage production: 320 cases Russell Bevan is a Titan among Napa winemakers, and his incredible single vineyard reds from 'Grand Cru' sites including the Tench, Beckstoffer... Dr. Crane and Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyards are among the Valley's greatest. For those in the know it gets even more exciting with his ultra-rare Sonoma bottlings. These wines show the remarkable breadth of Russell's talent, and why the far western reaches of Sonoma are home to some of the most exciting Chardonnays in the World. The Ritchie Vineyard is one of the ‘Grand Crus’ of the Russian River Valley and is the source for some of THE best Chardonnays in California. The fruit is highly coveted by winemaking legends Mark Aubert and David Ramey, and Russell’s Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay is the most intense of them all. It’s a wine with bags of cellaring potential, yet its opulence is going to make it hard to resist opening early on. Russell Bevan: "Our 2019 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay is a powerhouse. while we love to drink our Cabernets Sauvignons and red wine blends young, we have always enjoyed our chardonnays with some maturity. Of course, they are yummy when they are young, but they just have so much intensity that they shine even brighter with a little age. With this vintage we have crafted a wine that will draw a crowd, tomorrow and for years to come. Opulent, dynamic, it pulses key lime, pineapple and a kiss of stone fruit. This wine pulls no punches."

2019 Dragonette, Duvarita Vineyard Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County 1x75cl

RP95+VM95
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage Production: 200 cases The Duvarita Vineyard is in the far west of the region, sitting literally metres outside of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA boundary, and it is one of... the most sought after vineyards. The steep slopes sit on a combination of ancient sand dunes and sandstone, producing wines of characteristic depth and intensity. Dragonette's Chardonnay comes from the highest blocks, more influenced by the cooling Pacific fog and full of stone fruit and a crisp minerality, and we love the extra dimension on the palate that comes from lees contact. For some summer-dining inspiration, the regional seafood specialties are the famous local halibut and sea bass, either (or both!) of which are perfect with a glass of Duvarita Chardonnay.

2020 Dragonette, Rita’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills 1x75cl

JD95JS95VM96
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage Production: 235 cases One of the producers at the forefront of Sta. Rita's Hills' success is Dragonette Cellars. Winemaker Brandon Sparks-Gills, and brothers Steve and... John Dragonette, select the region's elite vineyards to make Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of utter refinement and distinction. Rita’s Crown vineyard is located at one of the highest points in the Sta. Rita Hills, adjacent to such famous sites as Mt Carmel and Sea Smoke. The soils are a mix of sandy and clay loams with a good amount of diatomaceous earth. Dragonette's Chardonnay comes from two parcels: block 16, (clone 76) lies at 800-950 feet on a steep, west-southwest facing hillside above the monastery, and block 12 (clone 95), a steep south facing hillside just below and to the west. These higher elevation blocks are exposed to fog and clouds most mornings and high winds most afternoons, cooling the vineyard. The climate and the low vigour soils produce a small canopy, small yields and a long, slow growing season. The wines here typically show beautiful, ripe tropical fruit flavours, balanced by remarkable acidity and strong notes of chalky minerals.

RP95+
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage production: 550 cases Larry Hyde is the King of Chardonnay growers in California. His fruit is hand-selected by the very best producers for their single vineyard... bottlings: Mark Aubert, Steve Kistler, David Ramey and Aubert de Villaine (Hyde de Villaine & Domaine de La Romanée Conti), to name just a few. In 1979, Larry planted the legendary Hyde Vineyard in Los Carneros, Napa's coolest-climate, and quickly built his reputation as one of the finest growers in California. A Chardonnay with 'Hyde Vineyard' on the label is of an assured 'Grand Cru' level, yet the story gets even more compelling. In 2005, Larry took the leap from grower to winemaker and planted his family's new Estate Vineyard, described by Mark Aubert as “Where Burgundy meets California” – a brilliant summation of the Larry Hyde 'Hyde Vineyard Estate' Chardonnay produced from this remarkable site.

It has energy and a lively core, with a freshness that begs for oysters or crab Fresh orange and a hint of passion fruit give this wine just a touch of exoticness... this is a wine that we will be sipping on our patio all summer long."
