About The Producer
The 2018 Chardonnay Le Souvenir Sierra Madre Vineyard comes from a site outside of Santa Maria and was brought up in 60% new French oak. Awesome notes of white flowers, white currants, toasted spices, honeysuckle and a touch of spice all emerge from this ultra-classic, medium to full-bodied, seamless beauty. It does everything right and is just a classy effort.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chardonnay le Souvenir Sierra Madre Vineyard is a gorgeous, multidimensional wine that opens with loads of spicy accents and touches of toast, honeysuckle and baked apples. It's satiny and expansive in the mouth, packed to the gills with ripe, spicy flavor layers and finishing very long with great freshness that calls you in for another sip. Pure class! 225 cases produced.
The 2018 Chardonnay Le Souvenir Sierra Madre Vineyard is one of the most expressive wines in this range. Bright and lifted, with striking aromatic intensity and all the tropical accents that are typical of this site, the 2018 is impeccably balanced from start to finish. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and lightly honeyed notes all grace this wonderfully inviting Chardonnay from Paul Lato. In a word: superb.
