Hill Family Estate Chardonnay Usa White 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 ?Carly?s Cuvee? Chardonnay greets with aromas of ripe melon, lemon and loquat fruit. The palate is full and crisp up front, which leads to a rich midpalate of peach and lemon, followed by a spicy clean finish. The wine offers beautiful acidity and is more Burgundian in style when compared to most California Chardonnay?s that resemble a cube of butter and a baseball bat!
