Wine Details

Lot 445 hits you with top notes of honeysuckle and citrus zest/lemon verbena, and then broadens out with honeycomb and guava. Pineapple and butterscotch shimmer in the background, and will come to the fore with a bit more time in the bottle. The palate is similarly multi-dimensional, with wonderfully high-toned freshness and tropical fruit resolving in a lush, buttery finish. In a word: Brilliant.

Cam Confidential

This is our best-selling white wine every year. Barrel fermented in new American oak with full malolactic fermentation, this style of Chardonnay suits the Arroyo Seco sub-appellation of Monterey County to a T. While 2012 was a fantastic comeback for this wine (since frost decimated our chances in 2011), 2013 is even better than 2012, and as good as the vintage that put us on the map with Arroyo Seco: 2009.

In my opinion 445 is one of the best, if not the epitome of your California Chards.
It all has come together to make this an almost perfect combination of all things excellent in Chardonnays
Thanks for making is available to us.

I really like the balance in this wine. Got just the right citrus/white fruit combined with the perfect crisp yet buttery flavor. Don't much like the cork.

A good value and much appreciated by my wife, the family "Chard" drinker.

I like this wine a bunch so I bought a bunch. It is clean and not overly malo. Perfect balance and the white fruit/slight citrus is def my favorite ....Arroyo Seco/Cam Hughes has given numerous continuous incredible value wines.

One dis from my viewpoint is the plastic.....

I am the exception, in that I much preferred the 2012. Found it smoother, more buttery and greater hint of vanilla.

This is a very good Chardonnay, a lot of tropical fruit with a creamy finish. My favorite is still the 417 but this is a close second.

This wine is perfectly balanced with the base notes of fruit and butterscotch being complemented by the acidity. I really enjoy it as an aperitif before enjoying a dinner.

This is probably the 5th Chardonnay from Arroyo Seco we've gotten from Cameron Hughes. Every one has been simply delicious and what great values!

We received our recent purchase and were not disappointed. This is consistently our favourite Chardonnay for the money. We have not been unhappy with any of our Cameron Hughes purchases.
Look forward to more.

This was the first wine my wife & I tried from CH wines and we were especially pleased with how good it was. We thought it was smooth and very enjoyable. We are ordering more!
