Taste the Sta. Rita Hills
Each year, Brewer-Clifton produces a Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Winemaker Greg Brewer uses these wines as an opportunity to showcase the uniqueness of the region by blending together fruit from each of Brewer-Clifton’s cool-climate estate vineyards. These wines are aged in neutral barrels to capture the region’s signature characteristics. For Chardonnay, this creates a wine with racy acidity and notes of orange peel, citrus zest, and fresh sea salt. For Pinot Noir, this results in a structured, earthy wine thanks to using the whole grape cluster (that means stems, seeds and all!) to capture notes of ripe cherry, savoriness and tea.
