MELVILLE Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills 'Estate' 2014

The 2014 ‘Estate’ Chardonnay is a sensational showing in this vintage. This Chardonnay comes from a combination of eight different clones and opens with a bright bouquet of lemon curd, tangerine rind along with crème brûlée and butterscotch nuances. The texture is absolutely gorgeous, as this wine delivers ripe flavors of banana, Meyer lemon and suggestions of butterscotch and nutmeg all framed by wonderful minerality. This is a lithe and delicious Chardonnay that is already showing extremely well. (Best 2017-2023) - August, 2017 (OB)
