William Hill Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay comes from Napa, primarily southern sectors, although there is some St. Helena and Rutherford fruit in it. It was put through 100% malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie in a combination of new and used American oak. The wine offers toast and vanillin, has loads of lemon custard and poached pear notes, a medium body and good, fresh, lively fruit. Drink it over the next several years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a simply rendered, nicely light-bodied version of the variety, round and fleshy in mouthfeel with a taste of sugar-rimmed lime.
Wine SpectatorStraight-ahead in the mix of citrus-driven pear and apple flavors, this is good but leaves you wanting more. Drink now. 39,000 cases made.
