The Hilt Estate Chardonnay 2018
The Hilt Estate wines are defined by the fruit and flavours of the southwestern corner of the Sta. Rita Hills. They speak of the nuances and complexities of the property as a whole. The wines take into account the many aspects, clones, soil types, and other properties of the Hilt estate. They provide the maximum amount of blending components and represent the most complete wines in the Hilt portfolio. The Estate Chardonnay is aged in 34% New French oak,56% neutral French oak, 10% stainless steel for 11 months. Notes of sliced apple, nectarines and honeyed flowers, with just a hint of salinity and minerality. It's elegant, beautifully balanced and has a great finish.
