2016 Clementine Carter Santa Barbara County Grenache Blanc (Previously $25)

SKU #1346718 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Very light in color in the glass, this bottling shows fragrant touches of clean tropicality, including creamy cherimoya, light tuberose, refreshing apple blossoms and sliced Gala apples on the nose. There's a bountiful sizzle of acidity to the sip, where crisp pear and apple flavors meet with honeysuckle and Key lime spray.  (2/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A co-ferment of two distinct vineyards: Thompson Vineyard on Alisos Canyon + Tierra Alta Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. Both sites share rich, loamy-clay soils on gentle sloping hillsides with wide-row spacing. Fruit was processed and fermented together; 50% in stainless steel tanks and 50% in neutral French oak barrels for a long, cool fermentation. 130 cases produced."

Other White Wines


United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Santa Ynez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
