Introducing the Paul Lato Matinee Chardonnay 2021, a symphony of elegance and depth crafted by renowned winemaker Paul Lato. This exquisite wine emanates a rich, golden hue, captivating the eye with its allure. The aromas are a delightful fusion of creamy golden apple and honeydew melon, offering a seductive introduction.
Upon the first sip, the wine envelops the palate with a luxurious fullness that mirrors the lushness of its bouquet. Subtle undertones of wet stone and yuzu lemon add complexity, while a masterfully balanced acidity brings vibrancy and poise. The intricate dance between flavors and texture reveals the hand of an artist in the form of Paul Lato, who has harnessed the essence of these vineyards with meticulous precision.
As the journey through the palate unfolds, a crescendo of flavors emerges, leading to a long and focused finish. Here, the wine’s true character shines as bright citrus notes harmonize seamlessly with delicate hints of vanilla spice, a testament to the judicious use of French oak during the aging process.
This masterpiece is the result of a meticulous blend of five esteemed vineyards from two prestigious appellations in Santa Barbara County. Solomon Hills Vineyard and Gold Coast Vineyard from Santa Maria Valley seamlessly intertwine with Peake Ranch, Zotovich, and Drum Canyon Vineyards from Sta. Rita Hills, each lending its unique nuance to the ensemble. The influence of Santa Maria Valley’s fragrant and perfumed essence combines with Sta. Rita Hills’ structural depth, weight, and power, culminating in a wine that both entices and satisfies.
With a promising aging potential of 3 to 5 years, the Paul Lato Matinee Chardonnay 2021 promises an exquisite evolution, inviting wine enthusiasts to revel in its layers of flavor and unparalleled finesse.
