The 2012 Chardonnay Dierberg Vineyard is no shrinking violet and gives up ripe, layered notes of lemon curd, ripe peach, brioche and vanilla bean to go with a medium-bodied, rounded, supple profile on the palate. 100% barrel-fermented and aged 12 months in 400-liter (15% new) barrels and then 6 months in stainless steel, itís a gorgeous wine that also represents superb value.
Wine maker notes
Grown in one of the cooler corners of California, this wine is made from marquis cuttings of historic California developed clones and planted atop a sandy loam mesa overlooking the south bank of the Santa Maria River. DIERBERG Chardonnay offers a rich mouth feel with precise acidity and minerality. Hallmark aroma associations have been pear and fennel, but its subtle complexity contains a myriad of characters that emerge with time. All Chardonnay is fermented in 400-liter demi-muid barrels, balancing the impact of oak with the natural expression of this classic California vineyard.

Producer
In 1996, with forty years of winemaking experience, Jim and Mary Dierberg’s dream of producing wines worthy of their 250 year plan became a reality. After a long search through France and Napa, while learning the craft and making wine in the mid-west, they discovered the potential of Santa Barbara’s cool coastal valleys. The family planted two estates -first their namesake Dierberg Vineyard and later Drum Canyon Vineyard - both under their DIERBERG label. These estates, along with the family’s iconic warm climate site Star Lane Vineyard, culminated in a trio of peerless properties in Santa Barbara County.
