Named One of the Year’s Best CA Chardonnays by Wine & Spirits magazine, the Solomon Hills 2018 Estate Chardonnay comes from the esteemed Solomon Hills Vineyard - the westernmost and coolest vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA and often considered one of the Grand Crus of California.

As the vines turn 21 years old at this special site, the distinct texture of this wine is starting to show itself. The concentrated white peach, banana and grapefruit peel notes are distinctly present, while a fresh minerality showcases the sandy soils and dried pebbles of the Solomon Hills estate.
