2018 Reserve Chardonnay
Sta. Rita Hills
The Sta. Rita Hills AVA has achieved much acclaim for its Chardonnays, and this classic lives up to its Reserve title. The grapes came from five Chardonnay clones on the Lafond property, and fruit from Hilltop Ranch, one of the oldest vineyards in the area. 100% barrel fermentation and aging, with additional malolactic fermentation, has resulted in a beautifully creamy, complex wine.
