93 Wine Spectator “This stunning wine leaps out of the glass, with concentrated flavors and aromas of white peach, quince and pineapple, plus floral accents of orange blossoms and lemon curd. Finishes with mouthwatering acidity, a note of crunchy sea salt minerality and a whiff of lemon verbena.”

About DIATOM

Diatom specializes in only one variety-Chardonnay-and is motivated by the pursuit of subtraction and refinement. Sourced from Santa Barbara County, Winemaker Greg Brewer describes his work with diatom as “…the polishing of a grain of rice until one has reached its ultimate inner core.” Fermented at low temperatures in small stainless-steel tanks, coupled with inhibited malolactic fermentation and short hose transportation, diatom pays homage to the stark maritime influenced landscape of its provenance. Greg Brewer strives to imbue recognition of place with as little disturbance, distraction or interference as possible. The resulting wine has a sense of transparency and a purity of intent and purpose. “Diatom is motivated by the pursuit of subtraction and refinement. Our Sta. Rita Hills marine landscape is stark and so are the wines of its provenance. We strive for a recognition of place with as little disturbance, distraction or interference as possible. The resulting wines have a sense of transparency and a purity of intent and purpose.” -Greg Brewer, Founder & Winemaker
