Product Name

The Hilt was founded in 2008 and is now owned by Stan Kroenke whose properties include Screaming Eagle and Bonneau du Martray. Run by winemaker Matt Dees, who actually turned down the top job at Screaming Eagle, it is a project he has overseen for many years and the wines just keep getting better and better. Situated in the Santa Rita Hills, the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean keeps acidity in check and is the perfect climate for growing both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, which ripen to near perfect. When in the hands of Dees, the resulting wine is truly magnificent.

"The 2018 Chardonnay Estate is soft, open-knit and inviting. Light tropical accents add character to the orchard fruit flavors in this attractive, mid-weight offering. The 2018 finishes with superb persistence, impeccable balance and brilliant saline notes that knit all the elements together. This is such a classy, polished wine." 92 points, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

"Starting with the appellation 2018 Chardonnay Estate, this wine has a vivid gold hue as well as classy notes of sliced apple, nectarines, and honeyed flowers, with just a hint of salinity and minerality. It's elegant, beautifully balanced, and has a great finish, all while staying in the more vibrant, fresh style of this estate." 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck www.jebdunnuck.com
