Winemaker James Sparks has become a star of the California wine scene through his award-winning work at Liquid Farm. Kings Carey is Sparks’ proprietary Santa Barbara County label crafting small-production wines in a minimalist, "keep it simple" style, often single varietals from single vineyards, like this intriguing Sémillon from the Vogelzang Vineyard. On the nose, pear and lime skins, roasted yellow apples and brioche. On the palate, the flavors expand into fresh green and yellow apple notes, with citrus and a honeyblossom finish. A great aperitif or partner for seafood, grilled chicken, and edamame-corn salad with farm fresh tomatoes and feta.
