Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay is sourced from a combination of the cool climate of the Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills and the warm, balmy blocks of the La Plata Vineyard of Santa Barbara County. The nose combines a touch of minerality from the cooler sites, while rich, ripe notes of golden pear, papaya and mango are from the inland, more continental climates. Flavors of Golden Delicious apples, Meyer lemons, tropical fruits and sweet cream are balanced with crisp acidity and a silky mouthfeel. The finish lingers with notes of vanilla and coconut from the barrel fermentation. The rich texture and bright fruit of the 2007 Chardonnay make it a perfect wine for sipping alone, or an easy pairing with grilled halibut, creamy cheeses, roast chicken or cream-based pasta dishes.

About LinCourt Vineyards:

Founded in 1996 by Bill Foley, Lincourt is a producer of ultra premium wines from the Santa Barbara County. Named in honor of Bill and Carol’s two daughters, Lindsay and Courtney, the Lincourt winery is located in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, on Alamo Pintado Road in the Santa Ynez Valley. Originally a dairy farm, the 30 acre property retains the rural charm and simplicity of an earlier era. The quaint tasting room is located in the former farmhouse, a 1926 Sears Craftsman kit home. The barns have been converted to a winery and barrel room, and equipped to allow for handcrafted, premium winemaking.

Great fruit, dedicated winemakers, incredible climate and a serene setting – Lincourt embodies the best of Santa Barbara wine country.
