Elegant: Green Apple, Pineapple, Flint, Sea Salt
LUTUM was born from a shared vision between Bill Price, entrepreneur and owner of Classic Wines and Price Family Vineyards, and winemaker Gavin Chanin. Their wine focuses on small-production, single-vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from prime vineyard sites in California.
The name LUTUM is Latin for dirt or soil, and the Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is some pretty special dirt. This was one of our very favorite Chardonnays at the In Pursuit of Balance tasting this year. It's rich yet elegant with clean flavors and a finish that goes on forever.
