2016 Fess Parker "Ashley's Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1370027 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Ashley's is generous and resonant on the palate. Orange peel, lemon confit, spice and new French oak (34%) shape a broad, creamy Chardonnay that will drink well with minimal cellaring. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From a vineyard just 12 miles inland from the ocean, this bottling shows toasted brioche, preserved lemon, sweet sandalwood and a touch of caramel on the nose. It hits the palate with a riper peachy sweetness, but then tightens into searing, laser-focused acidity rounded by hints of lemon and Gravenstein apple. (MK) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Ashley's is another Sta. Rita Hills release and spent 9 months in 34% new French oak. Its medium gold color is followed by a spicy, toasty Chardonnay that has classic orchard fruits and white flower aromas, a core of sweet fruit, medium body, and a juicy finish. It's a total charmer to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Round and supple, this wine offers a range of mineral accents, from graphite to powdery sand. It’s also intriguingly floral, with a distinct violet perfume wrapped within smoky oak tones. Tight in the end, this is ready to chill for a clambake. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spicy and rich-tasting, with concentrated white fruit flavors that are backed by zesty acidity. The luscious finish features lemon meringue and gooseberry notes. Drink now through 2022. (KM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)
