Justin Willett is the face behind Tyler Winery. He is known to possess a regional mastery of Santa Barbara with his hands in several well-known vineyards. He farms fruit from Sanford & Benedict in Santa Rita Hills and the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. Always with his mind looking forward, he planted his own estate vineyard in SRH. Justin uses the region’s virtues of the land while using the mentality that wine is made in the vineyard rather than the cellar. Justin’s wines are filled with energy and structure showcasing the uniqueness of Santa Barbara soils.
This Chardonnay might be entry level for Justin, but it still brings in fruit from a couple of the most noteworthy vineyards in Santa Barbara, including Bien Nacido and Sanford & Benedict Vineyards. The vines are older, planted between the 1970s and 1990s. This Chardonnay is aged for eleven months in oak, 10% of which is new.
