Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2017) - 92 pts

The 2017 Alesia Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains has a very gregarious nose of honeycomb, orange marmalade and ginger cream with warm peach cobbler, candied citrus, warm hay and crushed stone. "That could be the kiss of the heat spike," says Rhys winemaker Jeff Brinkman of the honeyed character of this vintage. The palate is medium-bodied and gives up intense, savory fruits in the mouth with lots of that honeyed, peachy character, lifted by good freshness and finishing long - Erin Brooks


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2017) - 91 pts

The 2017 Chardonnay (Santa Cruz Mountains) is a blend of the Alpine and Horseshoe vineyards. Brisk and nuanced, with tremendous energy as well as personality, the Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay is another fabulous wine in the Alesia range. Citrus, floral and mineral notes are beautifully delineated in a Chardonnay that is both vibrant, but also accessible and easy to enjoy young - Antonio Galloni
