For the first time ever (I’ve been trying for 5 years), we got our hands on Sea Smoke’s elusive, exclusive and exquisite Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay, the famous cool climate Chard that helped propel this tiny winery into the elite stratosphere and cult status. Made with Dijon and Wente clones, they use stainless steel as well as French oak foudres and demi-muids to ferment their Chard, producing and elegant and laser focused Chardonnay.
This is a spectacular new release – a flawlessly crafted, high energy coastal Chardonnay from one of California’s hottest spots. As bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with a hint of that limestone-influenced minerality creeping in on the finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, the perfect pair with mixed seafood, summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.
Soon to be Rated
Winemaker and pioneer Josh Jensen has been recognized by Wine Spectator as the Cover feature, he’s won multiple winemaking awards and he’s one of the most respected American winemakers ever. His legacy at Calera will be cemented in the history books, because he made great wines from top to bottom. His entry level Chardonnay was always a tremendous value – a high toned, expressive Chardonnay with impeccable balance and elegance well beyond its price tag. With Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and most likely Wine & Spirits weighing in soon, I’m certain this one will be treated to the usual 90+ point scoring brigade.
98 Points, James Suckling
The wine is absolutely gorgeous – more than worthy of the lofty 98-point score it received from James Suckling. The review called the wine, “Energetic and bright with tightness and structure” all of which I find accurate, but it’s also the pristine and weighty fruit with the signature Hyde Vineyard smoky-graphite tones that make this wine so unique.
