2019 Chardonnay  -  La Lomita

The Lomita Estate

- While the winery wasn't formally established until 2009, La Lomita's land holdings include vineyard sites with some of the Valle de Guadalupe's oldest vines.

La Lomita produces most of its wines with fruit from their organically farmed vineyards located mid-valley on a northwestern facing slope at 950 ft elevation. The winery is one of the few to be certified organic. 

- Their vineyards lie approximately 11 miles from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft. The soil profile is a mix of clay and granite. 

Total production: 17 acres under vine, 8 wines, 7,500 cases

2019 Chardonnay - La Lomita

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    A Chardonnay with a rich and layered mouthfeel backed up by elegant and well-balanced acidity, this is an excellent Chardonnay for those looking for a toned-down version of a Cali Chard but who aren’t ready to go to the racy sharp-edged minerality of something like one finds in Chablis. Drink this over the next 5 years.
