Melville Estate Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2016

$29.99

93+ Points                              A fantastic new release from Melville, one of our favorite Santa Barbara producers! 92 Points Antonio Galloni:  "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous wine built on freshness and cut. Expressive floral notes add shades of nuance to this super-expressive, complex Chardonnay from Melville. The 2016 is the first vintage made by Chad Melville, and it shows a preference towards a less reductive style that characterized the wines during Greg Brewer's tenure."

Great Chardonnay from Santa Barbara. Lemon and white flowers. Textual and silky. Golden fruits. Resounding acidity.

Smakar hälften så dyrt som det kostar. Söt citrus och lite mineral (?) finns det mineraler i USA?
