The 2021 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills is the first vintage of Chardonnay from Donnachadh. It was barrel fermented and matured for around 10 months. Its aromas combine bright herbal, green apple and pear tones with underlying savory hints. The light-bodied palate is bright and fresh yet offers a touch of anchoring creaminess that draws out the finish.

Bright aromas of lemon, orange blossom, brioche, and river stone are enticing on the nose of this first ever Santa Rita Hills AVA bottling for Donnachadh. On the palate there is a burst of acid with delicate flavors of candied citrus, tart marmalade, and a lingering hint of sea salt on the finish that perfectly expresses the balance of bright sun and cool sea air in the vineyards. (WE 93 pts, Editor’s Choice)

Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
