Brewer Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Intense flavors of honeydew melon and pear tart dominate this supple white. The richly spiced finish shows some pastry notes.
The 2016 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills offers up a bright bouquet of honeyed citrus, preserved lemon, apple and beeswax, framed by a touch of nutmeg-like leesiness. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with lovely glossy texture underpinned by lots of cut, finishing with good length and grip. This is one of Brewer-Clifton's largest cuvées, and it's keenly priced too.
