William Hill Central Coast Chardonnay

For nearly 40 years, William Hill Estate Winery has been offering rich and expressive Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietal wines from select vineyards in Napa Valley and the California coast. Our collection of wines are rooted in the character of the unique, rolling hills of our 200-acre estate in the heart of the Silverado Bench in Napa Valley, crafted through the vision of winemaker Mark Williams, thoughtful vineyard planning and meticulous attention in the cellar.


Our William Hill Estate Central Coast Chardonnay is fruit-forward and vibrant, featuring notes of ripe tree fruit, baked apple and citrus with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Subtle hints of nutmeg, caramel and honey linger on the long, silky finish.

We sourced much of our Central Coast Chardonnay from vineyards in Monterey County, primarily the Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco AVAs. The 2017 vintage proved to be a challenge because of an early heat wave during the harvest season, but delivered incredible quality fruit to the cellar. A wet winter and early spring gave way to a warm and sunny growing season, pushing our Chardonnay to ideal ripeness while maintaining excellent acidity.

The grapes for our Central Coast Chardonnay were whole-cluster pressed. A portion of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks to ensure a slow, even and clean process, with the remainder fermenting on oak. This Chardonnay underwent malolactic fermentation while aged on its lees and was stirred weekly to build texture and a creamy mouthfeel. After individual evaluations of each lot, the final blend was assembled to create a rich and beautifully balanced Chardonnay.
