Press & Reviews
Citrus-driven, this fleshy, oak-kissed wine is complex and crisp, with a sophisticated elegance. Light-bodied and well integrated, it shows a subtle touch to its mix of green apple, melon and lemongrass, finding a flinty end with length.
Anthill's 2018 Chardonnay Peugh Vineyard is bright, focused and super-expressive. Lemon confit, white flowers and light tropical notes give this Russian River Chardonnay a good bit of energy. The 2018 offers terrific energy and nuance. These 75 year-old, dry-farmed vines confer notable distinction.
