Wine Enthusiast 93 - Sophisticated, complex winemaking is on display here. Perfectly ripe yellow and green fruits are entwined with leesy, textural, mineral-drenched acids. There are gentle touches of citrus rind and a finishing pat of butter. All in all, an exceptional wine for the price.
Wine Buying Guide 93 - If you’re looking for an expressive, flavorful white wine, then the Rex Hill Seven Soils Chardonnay 2014 is a perfect choice for you. This lovely white wine shows fresh, enticing aromas of lemon curd, lime, pear, honeysuckle, melon, and pineapple. Accents of coconut, toasty oak, and crème brûlée provide warmth and interest. On tasting, the wine is just as inviting. Elegant and full-bodied, the wine shows cool notes of slate and brine that mingle with vanilla and nutmeg. This delicious wine is an elegant addition to any evening and any dinner table.
When the wine is poured, beautiful aromatics of white flowers, peach skin, citrus fruit, orange blossom, lime and wet stones swirl out of the glass. As it opens, more complex aromas of bread dough, kiwi, fresh cut hay, nectarines and minerals surface. On the palate, the oak is restrained, adding balance to a ripe acidity that is the hallmark of the 2014 Oregon vintage.
