Vinous, 94 Points  

"The 2018 Chardonnay Ashley's is gorgeous. Bright, floral and lifted, the Ashley's shows the more restrained side of the Sta. Rita Hills. White flowers, mint, orchard fruit, candied lemon peel, marzipan and light tropical accents give the Ashley's unreal complexity and nuance. This mid-weight Chardonnay has so much going on. It is without question one of the finest wines I have tasted from Fess Parker." 

Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"Aromas of citrus peel, lime pith and crushed sea shell show on the tightly wound nose of this bottling. The palate is also quite taut, combining chalk and lime peel into a brisk expression, with boundless energy lurking just below the surface. Drink 2021–2038." 

Wine & Spirits, 92 Points 

"At once spicy and bright, this chardonnay shows how well oak can complement the chill, crisp Sta. Rita Hills fruit character. The wine smells of lees and white flower petals, of caramel and lime pith, the net effect tense, citrusy, fulsome and layered." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Points 

"The 2018 Chardonnay Ashley's comes from a vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and was brought up in one-third new French oak. It has classic Sta. Rita Hills minerality and spice as well as notes of nectarines, spiced orchard fruits, salty minerality, and a kiss of iodine. Medium-bodied, elegant, and balanced on the palate, it should keep nicely for 4-5 years, if not longer." 

Winemaker Notes: 

This wine shows bright apple, pear and citrus fruit flavors complemented by attractive mineral notes with vanilla and toasty oak notes from French oak aging." 

Alcohol: 14.1%
