Antonio Galloni names this wine “one of the most distinctive Chardonnays in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation,” and we couldn’t agree more. The Hilliard Bruce 2013 Estate Chardonnay is a beautifully made, classy wine that shows both concentration and freshness while highlighting the terroir and minerality of the vineyard. Aromas of honeysuckle rise from the glass, while flavors of lemon blossom, slate, pineapple, and grapefruit add lift and crispness to the smooth palate. This is a superb wine, made in Christine Bruce’s simple Burgundian method with barrel fermentation to round out the bright citrus flavors.
