This is a single clone (Hyde) bottling from a sandy parcel within the 3D Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. To avoid confusion with the Brewer-Clifton 3D Chardonnay, this wine was named after Santos Road, adjacent to the 3D Vineyard. With access to only 1.5 acres, the production of this wine is limited.

CRAFT

Fermentation at very low temperature in small stainless-steel tanks, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit ensure precision and focus.

CELLARING

All of the wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.
