William Hill Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay comes from Napa, primarily southern sectors, although there is some St. Helena and Rutherford fruit in it. It was put through 100% malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie in a combination of new and used American oak. The wine offers toast and vanillin, has loads of lemon custard and poached pear notes, a medium body and good, fresh, lively fruit. Drink it over the next several years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a simply rendered, nicely light-bodied version of the variety, round and fleshy in mouthfeel with a taste of sugar-rimmed lime.
Wine SpectatorStraight-ahead in the mix of citrus-driven pear and apple flavors, this is good but leaves you wanting more. Drink now. 39,000 cases made.
