MELVILLE 2013 CHARDONNAY ESTATE SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

This wine is 100% from Melville's Sta. Rita Hills estate and is a combination of clones 4, 76, 95, and selections Mount Eden, Hanzell and Wente. It is their core Chardonnay and comes predominantly from their west side vineyards that have several different types of sandy soils. Because the west side receives the brunt of brutal ocean-winds and has only poor soils, we feel this Chardonnay always captures the vibrancy, minerality and concentrated flavors that are hallmarks of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "Hold onto your hats, as these latest releases from Chad Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer are off-the-charts good!"

"The 2013 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills is a smoking effort that represent a fabulous value in Chardonnay. Made in a pure, clean style, it was barrel-fermented and aged 8 months in neutral oak. It gives up serious notes of lemon, lime peel, tinges of wild herbs and salty minerality to go with a medium-bodied, balanced and elegant profile on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. Itís superb now, but will also age nicely for 3-4 years."

ANTONIO GALLONI 90 POINTS - "Lemon oil and white flowers are some of the notes that resonate in the 2012 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills. The combination of bright flavors, pulsating acidity and textural breadth is highly appealing. All the elements fall into place in an impeccable Chardonnay to drink over the next handful of years."
