Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a classic "cool climate" Chardonnay - sourced primarily from our Carneros vineyard and the mountain vineyards of Atlas Peak. These cooler climate grapes retain a firm acid structure as they ripen, allowing for full malolactic fermentation while keeping a crisp, fruit-forward structure in the wine.

This Chardonnay is gently oak-aged and left on the lees, allowing the fruit to shine. Intense tropical fruit and buttery pear aromas overlay a smooth, creamy texture and a mouthful of bright citrus, Meyer lemon and mango. Medium-bodied, the wine is tantalizing on the palate with a crisp, clean finish.

Because of its crisp character, the Napa Valley Chardonnay is a particularly good food wine, especially when paired with seafood or lighter style cream-sauced pasta dishes.

Since 1978, William Hill Winery has produced wines from the cool southern regions of Napa Valley, including the Silverado Bench and the Carneros districts. The winery specializes in Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing Reserve and Napa Valley bottlings. Chardonnay grown in the cool climate and well-drained soils of Carneros typically offer brighter, more intense flavors and higher acidity than grapes grown in the richer soils and warmer temperatures at the upper end of the Napa Valley. The result are Chardonnays that are highly complex and multi-layered with crisp, bright flavors.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
