Nestled in the Santa Rita Hills of California, Tyler Winery is the realisation of Justin Tyler Willett’s ambition to demonstrate the quality and character of the surrounding area. Working with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Justin learned his trade as an assistant winemaker on other local estates and in 2005 purchased the property which now makes up Tyler. More recently he and his wife have purchased the ‘Mae Vineyard’ on which they have continued to expand and grow their holdings.
With a philosophy which focuses on the natural characteristics of the grapes, soil and influence of the climate, Tyler are producing wines with great finesse and balance. This Chardonnay is bright and full of character and body, fruit forward in style with notes of citrus peel, apple and pear balanced alongside the delicate oak influence of butter and vanilla. With a long, elegant finish and unmistakable purity of fruit, this is a superb example of what this region has to offer – marine soils, a long growing season combined with the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean. We enjoyed this alongside a creamy chicken dish and also any rich fish such as Tuna. 12%ABV
