Land of Saints Chardonnay, 2020
Availability: 97 in stock
Almost reminiscent of a Meursault, with classic hints of lemon, lemon curd, baking spice, and just a hint of vanilla. The wine was aged in 30% new French barriques, giving it a perfectly balanced textural tone through, with plenty of mineral notes to back it up.
Why Land of Saints?
Co-founder Jason Osborne hails from the county of Cornwall in Southwest England, affectionately known as the ‘Land of Saints’ due to its history of holy figures. So, it was only fitting that when Jason moved to California and found a new ‘land of saints’ – he’s counted 33 ‘Sans’ and ‘Santas’ there – that he bestowed the name on his new winery.
Land of Saints is a collaboration between Angela and Jason Osborne (A Tribute to Grace Wine Company), and Manuel Cuevas (C2 Cellars). These three friends met during the 2013 vintage, and have been discussing sunshine, moon signs and their Kiwi/Cornish/Mexican-American roots ever since. Although stemming from three different corners of the globe, they are united by their love for California, and the vinous expressions of Santa Barbara County.

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge rises to greet you at the top of our Central Coast. Over the course of the next 500 kilometers (300 miles), the weather transitions from moody to mild, which makes for excellent diversity in both wine and surf.
Central Coast Wine Grapes
The Central Coast wine Grapes here are among the oldest in the state, planted by Franciscan monks as they made their way north on El Camino Real (“the royal road”, now Highway 101) in the late 1700s.https://discovercaliforniawines.com/discover-california/central-coast/
