This small winery in the Santa Rita Hills is the brain child of Jeff and Nikki Nelson. Their wine maker is Brandon Sparks-Gillis (the “man” behind the Dragonette success). Their wine-style is based and named in honor of the chalky white hills of Chablis and diatomaceous earth of the Santa Rita Hills.

Subtle aromas of raw honey, beeswax, baked sourdough and white flowers. The palate gives flavors of quince, tangelo, and creme fraiche with subtle hints of nutmeg and cardamom. A very long, lingering finish with flavors of marzipan and green pineapple that leaves your mouth-popping and (at least for us!) craving another sip.
Galloni 94 Points: “The 2014 Chardonnay Golden Slope is one of the richer, creamier wines in the range. Orange blossom, crème brulee, apricot jam and buttery notes are fused together. The Golden Slope will appeal most to readers who like more overt, flamboyant Chardonnays. Today, it is absolutely striking.”
