Out of stock

Bold and complex with an aromatic profile that immediately lifts out of the glass. Mandarin slices and lime zest shift to baking spice, gunflint, sweet smoke, and subtle vanillin with hints of almond/hazelnut, ripe peach, and dried apricot. Seamless and velvet-like on the entry, the ripe stone fruit combines with citrus and a subtle chalkiness. Great fruit density that remains elegant thanks to the presence of Santa Barbara County acidity. Finishes with laser-like focus and a hint of tart apple.

100% Chardonnay. Armed with a degree in Soil Science from the University of Vermont and Vintages at Staglin, in Napa, California and Craggy Range in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, Matt Dees has an intrinsic feel for wine, from dirt to glass. Curious and experimental by nature, Matt's approach to winemaking is grounded in the vineyard first and foremost: attuned to the vines, the weather, the soil, Matt seems almost to be a part of the vineyard itself. Made from vineyard blocks that are either too young or don't fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata Wines—The Paring is essentially a "chip off the old block." The Paring bottlings explore different styles and vineyards—from the dual stylistic expressions of Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay to the meticulously farmed Pinot Noir from a selection of distinctive Santa Barbara sites. When he's not working with The Paring, Matt can be found making the wines for its big-sister winery—Jonata.
