2012 Bright Star Chardonnay


2012 Bright Star Chardonnay

$24.95 (retail) Wine Club pricing reflected in receipt

We’ve got two wines this month that you’ll never find anywhere, nor will you be able to purchase them again after our supply is exhausted:  2012 Big Star Syrah and 2012 Bright Star Chardonnay.  When we purchased this extremely limited wine, we agreed not to reveal the winemaker, but we cannot obscure the fact that both were “produced and bottled” by Sanguis, a highly regarded winery based in Santa Barbara.

If you haven’t heard of this producer it is likely because its wines are made in very small quantities and you have to get on a list to purchase them.  Typically, Sanguis wines are routinely reviewed by the major industry publications and critics and typically score in the 90+ range.

Both Big Star and Bright Star were vinted in a custom-crush deal that for some reason fell through.  We secured these wines at fabulous pricing, which we are happy to pass along to our beloved Wine Club members.

This is a rare, limited and fascinating opportunity to have access to wonderful wines that will never be produced again.  We hope you enjoy them!

Gary’s Tasting Notes:  A pale, parchment hue belies the fact that this wine delivers big on quality factors: an intense nose that billows with apple and vanilla notes; the flavor profile is an eclectic blend of what chard lovers expect:  a smooth creaminess and restrained oak juxtaposed against a subtle, acidic tartness that makes this wine a genuine candidate for pairing with the cheese you are enjoying before dinner tonight.
