2016 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1377891 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Fruit notes combine Granny Smith apple with ripe amalfi lemon. A touch of hazelnut signals masterful and very restrained handling of oak - only neutral barrels were used. The palate is concentrated and precise, marshalling the vivid fruit and Pacific coastal freshness into a harmonious, expressive whole. There is quite a bit of alcohol, but the acid stands up to it beautifully. This is seductive now but has the stuffing to last the distance. Drink through 2030. (AK) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills offers up a bright bouquet of honeyed citrus, preserved lemon, apple and beeswax, framed by a touch of nutmeg-like leesiness. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with lovely glossy texture underpinned by lots of cut, finishing with good length and grip. This is one of Brewer-Clifton's largest cuvées, and it's keenly priced too. Drink through 2025. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brewer-Clifton's 2016 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine. Orange peel, passionfruit, apricot and a whole range of tropical inflections give the 2016 much of its personality. Classy and impeccable in its balance, the Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay has so much to offer. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2018)
