Winemaker's Notes:

Our Chardonnay is distinguished by its smooth, creamy texture derived from barrel fermentation and lees contact, with hints of toasty oak and spice complementing its very ripe, forward fruit flavors.

About William Hill Winery:

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.
