Melville Estate Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2013

$24.99

The 2013 Chardonnay Estate is gorgeous. Rich and oily on the palate, with considerable texture, the 2013 boasts tons of texture and breadth. Candied lemon, white flowers, almonds and chamomile add shades of nuance as the 2013 opens up in the glass. The 2013 boasts tons of oiliness and viscosity for a Chardonnay with no malolactic fermentation. Best of all, the 2013 is a great value. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This wine has blossomed since the last time I had it. Apple pie and lemon on the nose with just slight hints of any oak. Decent texture mixed with acidity on the palate. Good length.

Smells like St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake. A rich, vanilla clad nose leads to a ripe, snappy-fresh, stone/orchard fruit palate. Nice mineral and a lengthy finish. No malo, neutral oak, and 14% alc. Burgundian.

Seems like it wants to be earth driven, and the nose is nice, but it's clumsy and disjointed mid-palate and finish.
