Solomon Hills Vineyards Chardonnay 2013

This is an exotic chardonnay from the Solomon Hills Bien Nacido Vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley wine-making region of California.

  • The 2013 Chardonnay Solomon Hills is the freshest and best-balanced of the three Ojai Chardonnays I tasted. Lemon peel, white flowers and chalk all make an appearance in this nicely delineated, mid-weight Chardonnay. The style is all about understatement here - 91 points

Tasting Notes

On the western edge of the Santa Maria Valley this is one of the coolest regions. This wine has aromas of Meyer lemon, tangerine, grapefruit rind and ginger.

Exotic aromas of chamomile, white peach and passion fruit on the nose. This Solomon Hills is focused with a very rich, round mid palate and finish.

Hand harvested and whole cluster pressed; it was then barrel fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aging was sur lie for 18 months in French oak; 30% new.
