Jonata, 2015 The Hilt Chardonnay

92
"The 2015 Chardonnay is racy and open-knit in this vintage, offering attractive orchard fruit and yellow fruit character. There is a real viscosity and weight to the 2015, and its soft contours and plush fruit result in a giving, inviting Chardonnay that will be delicious to drink upon release. Fruit sources are Solomon Hills, Bentrock, Sanford & Benedict and Radian."

Jonata, 2015 The Hilt Chardonnay

"Made with the idea to be more approachable than the two special cuvees, the 2015 Chardonnay succeeds wonderfully and offers tons of juicy citrus, pineapple, and white flowers notes in a classy, balanced, textbook Santa Barbara County style. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years."

Wine Advocate
Jonata, 2015 The Hilt Chardonnay

91
"The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County has a very pretty grapefruit and yuzu-scented nose with hints of honeysuckle, toasted almonds and lemongrass. Medium-bodied, with a lovely line of racy acid lifting the elegant citrus flavors, it finishes with great length and mineral nuances."
