Hilltown Vineyards 2009 Chardonnay - ~$8

This is the new vintage of Fresh & Easy's Hilltown Chardonnay, reviewed here. This latest release follows in the fruit-forward, unoaked style of the earlier vintage. The flavor profile definitely leans more toward tropical fruit (pineapple, guava) than the earlier iteration, and on the whole the wine is a bit richer and creamier in the mouth.

This is, once again, a nice, approachable white, and still a pretty good deal for the price.


Drinkability: 8.5/10
Price: 4/5
Total value: 12.5/15

  1. I totally agree. This a very nice Chardonnay for the price. Nice buttery finish on the palate. A very nice wine from Hilltown Vineyards.


Individual taste matters! What did you think of the wine?
