Ceritas Porter Bass Vineyard Chardonnay

A Wine We Loved

Linsey writes,

                                       Husband and wife John Raytek and Phoebe Bass, part of the New California wine movement, make some beautifully stunning, terroir-driven wines. They have quite the pedigree to boot; Phoebe grew up on the Sonoma Coast Porter-Bass vineyard. John worked at Flowers, Rhys, Copain, and Lioco. Their ethos is simple; responsibly farm exceptional sites working the vineyards every day, so as not to need corrections in the cellar.

                                      The result is one of the most pristine expressions of California chardonnay I've ever swooned over. This particular bottling comes from the biodynamic and organic Porter Bass, just 8 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean.

2014 Ceritas Porter Bass Vineyard Chardonnay Focused tension and bright acidity are balanced by a lightly-weighted body, lemon curd, white flowers and sea salt. Very Good - Excellent 75; Mixed Case, 67.5; Case, 63.75 very limited
