2013 Vine Hill ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
From the vineyard in front of the winery, the 2013 Chardonnay Vine Hill Road Vineyard offers up the classic Old Wente clone style of white peach, white currants, honeysuckle, apple blossom, medium to full body, gorgeous purity and richness in a style similar to a Corton Charlemagne from Burgundy. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
The 2013 Chardonnay Vine Hill is one of the more aromatic, lifted wines in this range. Gracious and delicate to the core, the 2013 is quite understated in this vintage, perhaps because the slightly higher than normal yields bring out more of the floral signatures of this site than is typically the case.
