Product Overview

Winery's Notes:
"Diatom is named for the fossil-rich diatomaceous earth in which these vines grow. Diatom is motivated by the pursuit of subtraction and refinement. It is the polishing of a grain of rice until one has reached its ultimate inner core. We strive for a recognition of place with as little disturbance, distraction or interference as possible. The resulting wines have a sense of transparency and a purity of intent and purpose.

Winemaking: Fermentation at very low temperatures in small stainless-steel tanks for eight weeks, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit ensure precision and focus.

Aroma: Lemon, Citrus Blossom, Wet Sand
Flavor: Saline, White Peach
Texture: Precise, Balanced"

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Appellation: Santa Barbara County
Winemaker: Greg Brewer

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"This stunning wine leaps out of the glass, with concentrated flavors of white peach, quince and pineapple, plus floral accents of orange blossoms and lemon curd. Finishes with mouthwatering acidity, a note of crunchy sea salt minerality and a whiff of lemon verbena. Drink now. 23,000 cases made." -MW, 7/31/24
