Wine Details

A gorgeous amalgam of ripe mango, honeysuckle blossom, blood orange and butterscotch on the nose. The wine's lively high notes are balanced by a full-bodied, unctuous palate and a honeyed beam of acidity that exhibits why Arroyo Seco is such a special place for growing Chardonnay. Rich, ripe, lush and perfectly balanced…If you like the style of Rombauer or Talbott Chardonnays, you are going to love this wine.

Cam Confidential

This is the 5th year of our most popular Arroyo Seco Chardonnay program, and with this vintage I sought to go back to a deeper, richer, more tropical style; something that's more in line with the fantastic 2009 vintage. 2014 was another winner of a harvest (our third in a row, but I’ll not venture to curse ‘15) with near perfect ripening conditions, replete with warming and cooling trends that allowed for extended hang-times and a relaxed, pick-it-when-its-perfect crush scenario. 60% of the fruit was barrel fermented in new American oak, the remainder in stainless steel.

This is my favorite Chard that I have ordered from CHW - It was smooth, silky and full of flavor.I waited too long to try it and now I'm so sorry I can't reorder!

I loved this lot more than I thought I would. I bought two and brought them to dinner w/ friends. Everyone loved them but I am so sad they are out of stock.

A good friend often brought a bottle of this delicious chardonnay to summer potlucks. Each time I was thrilled, and asked what it was - and promptly forgot. She finally gave me a link to the Cameron Hughes website, and I bought a case. I've since re-ordered, and turned many friends onto this wonderful chardonnay. Warm, buttery, not too oaky. It's now my house chardonnay!

Don't think this is as Buttery as some of the other Chardonnays from this area. But it is a nice change and it is delicious and easy to drink. We prefer it to be a bit more creamy buttery - more like 417 from 2012. Our favourite.

crisp, tart fruit forward. More done in the French style of Chardonnay than typical California style

This is our favorite chardonnay. Just as good as 476. Reminds us of drinking Rombauer on our honeymoon!

This Chardonnay is creamy and full of butter. A terrific scallop or lobster wine!!!

I usually go to Binnys or Costco for wine because I can't afford to spend $15 a bottle and then shipping charge of $5 for each if not a case. I love the wine but have to always wait for free shipping. I'm 71 with limited income otherwise it wouldn't bother me.
