2022 Chardonnay - Santos Brujos

The Santos Brujos Estate:

- Santos Brujos is one of the few wineries in the region that has taken the steps to become certified organic and biodynamic. Certified by the CCOF, USDA and Demeter, they perhaps more dedicated to this approach than anyone else we have seen thus far. Even the name "Santos Brujos", which translates to "Saintly Witches" makes reference to the practice prescribed by Rudolf Steiner, (the founder of Biodynamic farming) by which the amendments to the soil and plants are prepared and stirred at length by hand. 

- All wines come from estate vineyards that are organically and biodynamically farmed. 

- All of the wines are made in a 'natural' style with native yeast fermentation, no additives, and have very minimal sulfites added at bottling for stability. 

Total production: 5 wines, 2,000 cases


2022 Chardonnay - Santos Brujos

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    While one could tell you this wine is organic, biodynamic and natural, it wouldn't explain what you were in store for as you lifted it to your lips. A Chardonnay that is built in the fashion of a high-end burgundy from the best estates, a portion of the final blend sees two months in new French oak before all of it is blended and continues to age in stainless steel tanks. This wine always holds up well with age and this vintage will be no exception. With an 80 case allocation to the US this year perhaps you'll even get to try it!
