J Wilkes Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2018

( 0 Reviews )

Winemaker Notes

Complex aromas of lime blossom, green apple, browned butter, ripe pear and hints of clean ocean air.

2018 was one of the longest, coolest growing seasons in almost a decade allowing the wine to be both restrained and incredibly flavorful. Concentrated fruit and minerals show on the mid-palate with a lively and bright finish.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Chardonnay J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley (which includes a splash of Pinot Blanc) was aged 8 months in 25% new French oak. It offers an exotic bouquet of quince and honeydew melon as well as some sappy flower notes, medium-bodied richness, a solid, balanced texture, and a good finish. It's not the most complex Chardonnay out there, but it's a good value.
