The Hilt, Estate Chardonnay 2019 Sta Rita Hills

15.5

South-western corner of the Sta Rita Hills. Ageing: 34% new French oak, 56% neutral French oak, 10% stainless steel for 11 months.
Rounded, ready to drink and at its best now, lacks a bit of concentration on the mid palate. Some hints of agrumes on the palate, zesty, pleasing integration of oak. Decent length. (AWH)
