Winemaker's Notes:

When we produced our first steel Chardonnay, we had no idea it would eventually become one of our most popular wines. From day one, the secret to our success has been the high quality of fruit from our estate Rancho Santa Rosa and Rancho Las Hermanas vineyards. This 2011 is both lively and concentrated, a rare vinous feat. The aromatics combine kiwi, mandarin zest and honeycomb. The palate is crisp and minerally with notes of lemons and green apples.

As with its predecessors, this Stainless Steel Chardonnay is perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to grilled chicken or fresh fish.

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.
