Sixto Roza Hills Chardonnay 2013
Open up and say minerals! This wine is alive! Bosc pear, hazelnut, clarified butter and pie crust. Yes, pie crust. A rich, decadent wine that begs for ripe cow’s milk cheese and a large glass.
Wine AdvocateThe richest, full-throttle and decadent in the lineup, the 2013 Chardonnay Roza Hills Vineyard offers lots of baked apple tart, white flowers and creaminess in a layered, balanced, classic style. Like the other wines here, it will drink well for at least 2-4 years.
Wine SpectatorPolished, with a hint of toast to the pear and pineapple fruit, coming together harmoniously on the lively, expressive finish, echoing minerally details. Drink now through 2020. 401 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine was whole-cluster pressed and puncheon fermented, with native malolactic fermentation. It's intriguing, with aromas of corn on the cob, lees, almond butter and chamomile that are followed by a dense flavorful palate. The balance is exquisite.
