Lagom by Torrin

LAGOM: "Just the right amount"... The archetypical Swedish proverb "Lagom ar bast", literally "The right amount is best"; also translated as "Enough is as good as a feast."

Scott and Viquel Hawley of Torrin have ventured from their Rhone Varietal roots to create an exciting companion brand in the wines of "Lagom." These wines focus on the inherent grace and finesse of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from select cool-climate vineyards in unique pockets of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

Lagom is a perfect mantra for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These varietals produce some of the world’s most sought after wines and manage to do so with an uncanny simplicity. They are rarely blended with other varieties, often expressions from a single site, and seldom heavy handed in their production yet they are capable of remarkable depth, complexity and impeccable balance. The finest examples are impressive without being overwhelming, they embrace the notion that enough is indeed “just the right amount”.
