2019 Carly’s Cuvee Chardonnay
Carly’s Cuvee is made from a selection of Chardonnay vineyards that Doug Hill has close connections with or manages himself. Crafted with very little malolactic influence and light oak makes this crisp, multi-layered Chardonnay a wine that enhances food and holds its own on the patio. Carly Hill is Doug Hill’s daughter, and her contributions to Hill Family Estate are honored with this beautiful wine. Cool weather with a few hot spells and a small crop characterized the 2019 season. The 2019 Carly’s Cuvee Chardonnay has aromas of lemon blossom, Lily of the valley, caramel apple, and lime leaf. The palate is light, clean, and fresh with crisp apple and pineapple flavors, leading to a persistent finish with lemon drop and a hint of oak.
