Solomon Hills 2019 Chardonnay
2019 Solomon Hills Winery Chardonnay “Estate” Santa Maria Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94+ Points
Rich, complex and just beginning to fully reveal itself, this is fine Chardonnay in the making. The nose is a well concentrated melange of fresh apple sauce, tarte tatin, dried golden fig, white peach tart, lemon blossom, vanilla wafer and hazelnut nougat scents that rise above harder mineral undercurrents. It is texturally plush yet fresher on the palate, with piquant grapefruit and gooseberry notes to enliven the richer core flavors of spiced apple and toffee. It is quite long yet never seems heavy, as racy fruit acidity freshens the push of baked nectarine and baking spice in the finish. 696 6-packs produced.
