Review: 2018 William Hill Benchmark Chardonnay

Review: 2018 William Hill Benchmark Chardonnay

William Hill’s top-level white wine, while it’s effusive on the nose, is — wow — surprisingly thin in body, lacking the gravitas one expects from a top-tier Napa chardonnay. Gentle floral and citrus aromas offer a lively introduction, but the palate doesn’t really follow through. Notes of figs and some cookie dough elements emerge on the tongue, but they’re amazingly mild, filtered through some faint notes of lemon curd, white flowers, and dates. The finish is slightly bitter, with a hint of greenness that I definitely wasn’t expecting at this price point.
