William Hill Benchland Chardonnay Napa 2014The 2014 William Hill Estate Benchland Series Chardonnay is crafted from select blocks from two of Napa Valley’s finest regions, the Carneros and St. Helena AVAs. These carefully-chosen vineyards offer intense fruit flavors and layers of complexity, with Carneros’ cool climate fruit adding crisp acidity while the warmer St. Helena grapes give lush tropical notes. This 2014 Chardonnay is luxuriously creamy with an appealingly full-bodied mouthfeel. Flavors of green apples, pears and fruit blossoms add some bright tones to the lushness. Hints of butter, a soft streak of oak, and touches of fruit rise in a long finish that maintains the luxurious richness.
