2018 Chardonnay (Sta.Rita Hills) Reserve
Our 2018 Santa Rita Hills Reserve Chardonnay has aromas of pear, nectarine, apricot and lemon curd with notes of vanilla. On the palate, the wine opens with ripe, stone fruit flavors followed by balanced acidity with notes of citrus on the mid-palate and a long, elegant finish.
This full-flavored Sta.Rita Hills is the essence of sunny California in a wine glass. It is Golden straw in color with inviting aromas of toasted coconut, banana cream pie and ripe pineapple. A few sips later, slight notes of graham cracker crust and hints of black cardamom appear in the background. On the palate, this voluptuous wine is rich, ripe and flavorful from start to finish. Drink now through 2023.
