Bright aromas of lemon, orange blossom, brioche, and warm river stone are enticing on the nose of this first ever Santa Rita Hills AVA bottling for Donnachadh. On the palate there is a burst of acid with delicate flavors of candied citrus, tart marmalade, and a
lingering hint of sea salt on the finish that perfectly expresses the balance of bright sun and cool sea air in the vineyards.
91/100 - Fresh and balanced with a lemony palate and fresh tarragon. Lemon curd, vanilla, green and yellow apple. Bright, juicy, linear and precise. - Ronan Sayburn MS, Eugenio Egorov, Ben Gubbins, Decanter 
94/100 - The 2021 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills is the first vintage of Chardonnay from Donnachadh. It was barrel fermented and matured for around 10 months. Its aromas combine bright herbal, green apple and pear tones with underlying savory hints. The light-bodied palate is bright and fresh, yet offers a touch of anchoring creaminess that draws out the finish. Proprietor Drew Duncan says that for this vintage, fruit came from the Donnachadh estate, although that may not be the case in the future as this new project really gets up and running. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate 
93/100 - This brand's new appellation bottling satisfies in both Old and New World ways. Clean, chalky aromas of bright Meyer lemon flesh and pith meet with a briny note on the mineral-laden nose. The palate is wrapped in chiselled-stone tannins, loaded with acidity and yet generous on flavors of white melon, lychee, nectarine and honeysuckle. - Matt Kettmann
