Melville Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Clone 76 Inox Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Visually bright, this wine radiates citrus and floral nuances of yuzu, honeysuckle, orchid and lime blossom. Yellow aromatics of lemon oil, verbena and kumquat mix with distinct aspects of chalk, taffy and saline. On the palate it deftly carries this complexity while remaining focused and ends with precision. Not yet reviewed. 2008 vintage rated 91 points by International Wine Cellar and Robert Parker, who wrote: One of California's most successful stainless steel fermented and aged Chardonnays...
