2017 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1520585 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Estate is fascinating to taste next to the 2018. It is a bit less exotic and more citrus driven in profile, with notable persistence and fine overall balance. Lemon confit, baked apple and a kiss of new French oak meld together effortlessly. A hint of reduction add character without overpowering the wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A heady mix of light wood, tart frozen yogurt, honeysuckle and orange rind hit the nose on this bottling. The lactic element pops on the fresh palate as well, where a steely, clean line of yuzu zest cuts through the crème fraiche. (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A terrific value, the 2017 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills offers classic Sta. Rita Hills notes of spice citrus, salted orchard fruits, honeysuckle, and crushed rock-like minerality. Beautifully textured, medium-bodied, with high yet integrated acidity, it can be drunk today or cellared for upwards of a decade. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Estate opens with notes of gunflint over perfumed white peaches and crushed hazelnuts. The medium-bodied palate is rounded, silky and bright with saline accents and a long finish. Give it another year or two in bottle. (EB) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
