Winemaker's Notes

Focused, bright, and lively, with chalky texture and minerality this wine is beautifully balanced wrapped in a medium bodied frame. Layers of lemon zest and citrus blossom, with golden delicious apple, and pear are complimented by hazelnut, baked brioche, and spice. Hints of graham cracker, vanilla, and coconut offer well integrated characteristics from French oak, roughly 20% new.

Critical Acclaim

"A wonderfully focused, saline-infused wine, the 2011 Chardonnay Solomon Hills Vineyard is another fabulous effort from Ryan Deovlet. There is so much to like in the 2011, from the beautifully delineated aromatics to the vibrant fruit and the wine's fabulous overall balance. Hints of lemon and pastry add complexity on the saline finish."
94 Points

"A classy, elegant white that delivers loads of mineral-tinged white peach, citrus rind and white flowers on the nose, the 2011 Chardonnay Solomon Hills Vineyard is medium-bodied, racy and pure, with a detailed, focused finish. There’s cool climate feel here on the nose and in the acid profile, yet it has a soft mid-palate and a clean texture, leading me to believe it’s best consumed early in its life. Nevertheless, it’s beautifully done and deserves a classy meal."
