Named after Fess' daughter, Ashley, this Chardonnay represents the best of the acclaimed Sta. Rita Hills growing region. The majority of the grapes come from a vineyard developed by the Parker family in 1996 situated only 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean. This hillside sites, sandy soils, persistent ocean breezes and fog make for a cold growing environment; the perfect scenario for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This wine shows pear, green apple, citrus, and lemon cream flavors complemented by attractive mineral notes with vanilla and toasty oak notes.

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "Blair Fox makes a wide range of wines for the Fess Parker empire, but arguably his finest work is here, at the flagship. The top Chardonnays and Pinots I tasted are among the finest wines of the year."

"The 2018 Chardonnay Ashley's is gorgeous. Bright, floral and lifted, the Ashley's shows the more restrained side of the Sta. Rita Hills. White flowers, mint, orchard fruit, candied lemon peel, marzipan and light tropical accents give the Ashley's unreal complexity and nuance. This mid-weight Chardonnay has so much going on. It is without question one of the finest wines I have tasted from Fess Parker."
