K&L Notes

Winery notes: The Hilt Estate Chardonnay is made up of fruit from the three maritime influenced vineyards in the southwest corner of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation: Radian, Bentrock, and Puerta del Mar. The vines range in age between 8 and 44 years old and grow on diatomatious earth and loamy sandy. They are pressed and fermented a combination of roughly 40% new French Oak barrels, nearly half used French oak, and the remaining in stainless steel. The wine undergoes 30% malolactic fermentation with no stirring. Aromatically the wine has notes of fresh white peaches, juicy apricots, and a hint of spiced tropical fruits. On the palate, the wine is seamless with ripe fruit flavors balanced by the oak and a flinty finish.
