2018 HT Chardonnay
Hilltop Ranch Vineyard

Bruce McGuire does not have to travel far to make the Hilltop Ranch Chardonnay. Made out of 100% Sta. Rita Hills fruit, from grapes sourced just North of the Lafond Vineyard, this Chardonnay showcases the hallmarks of cool climate grapes grown in gravel rich soil.

The vines are 34 years old and are self rooted. This allows all of the unique characteristics of the terroir to concentrate into each berry.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Chardonnay is pale gold, moving to platinum around the edges of the glass. Distinct aromas of yellow apple, candied pineapple, and vanilla greet the nose. Full flavors of baked apple pie and starfruit are followed by subtle crème brulée. Pair this rich, full-bodied white wine with lobster risotto, roasted chicken, or gruyere cheese.
