- 92 Punkte Vinous, Antonio Galloni: ?A new wine in this range, the 2016 Chardonnay is striking. Own-rooted Wente-clone Chardonnay yields a wine of real distinction and personality. Orange peel, honey, chamomile, sage and menthol all develop in the glass, but it is the structural feel that stands out most. The dense, powerful 2016 is a wine of real distinction. 2019-2026. Joanna Wells and Sean Castorani make compelling wines at Model Farm. The Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay is every bit as beautiful from bottle as it was from barrel.?

- 92+ Punkte View from the Cellar, John Gilman: ?The wine comes in cool and vibrant, tipping the scales at 12.5 percent octane and offering up a beautifully refined bouquet of pear, delicious apple, acacia blossoms, a touch of fresh almond, lovely soil tones and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, bouncy and intensely flavored, with a medium-full format, good depth at the core, excellent focus and grip and a long, zesty and nascently complex finish. This will age quite well and could do with a few years in the cellar to allow the secondary layers of complexity to start to emerge. Not surprisingly, given that Sean is the assistant winemaker at Rhys Vineayrds, this is indeed, quite Rhys-like in style and potential. An absolutely superb first effort with this varietal! 2020-2035. 92+.?

Notizen des Weinguts: Our Chardonnay comes from a historic site located deep in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The P&M Staiger vineyard was planted in 1973, own-rooted, to a selection of the old Wente clone. To say it is rare to find an own-rooted Chardonnay vineyard in California is an understatement! The vineyard sits on a steep south-west slope at over 1,000 feet elevation high above the San Lorenzo valley. This elevation allows for ample sunlight while the cold pacific air moderates the temperature. As with our favorite sites, the vineyard gets plenty of fog at the start and end of each day. The soils are a thin mix of sandstone and shale promoting full flavor ripeness at low sugars and high acidity.
