Melville Estate Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2014

$23.99

A fantastic new release from Melville, one of our favorite Santa Barbara producers! 93 Points Antonio Galloni:  "The 2014 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is rich and powerful in the glass, yet also shows good energy and overall translucence, especially for such an ample, broad-shouldered wine. Orange blossom, mint, spice and butter are front and center. With time in the glass, more tropically-leaning notes begin to develop. This, too, is, very nicely done."

Super solid central coast Chardonnay. Right on that old world/new world diving line. Super drinkable and enjoyable.

Best Chard for the $$ I think might be in the market. Clean bright yet lemon custard scents framed with excellent acid and balance. No Brainer!

My grandmother was/is the best pie maker I've ever known. Every meal finished with pie, always. Stiff peak meringues, fruit cobblers, homemade pie crust- all decadent and excellent. One of my favorites of hers was lemon meringue, with lemon curd and this wine reminds me of that pie.

Very good for a chard. Crisp. High acid keeps it fresh.

Oakness but maybe just what the people want. Has more to it than your average oak monster. $16.49 WG
