Round and buttery with lots of toast oak on the nose and palate. Rich and full-bodied with a creamy texture on the palate. Toffee and caramel on the finish.

Holy smokin' oak! Supported by quince, stone fruit, salted caramel and vanilla. 90 Points.

Toasty nose featuring burnt vanilla, butterscotch, caramel, and caramel apple. Gentle and creamy palate with integrated acidity. Baked apple and toffee on the palate through the finish. Good value. Pair with apple Dijon chicken or creamy seafood alfredo.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Gold in the glass and buttery on the nose. Popcorn on the palate to complement the buttery nose. Somewhat silky mouth feel even with the high alcohol in evidence. Medium long length. Great value at $19.95. Tasted April 2019.
|Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Lots of apple and white cranberry on the nose.
Creamy full-bodied buttery chardonnay with light to moderate oak.
This would be a great appetizer wine for appetizers that have a buttery texture (e.g., phyllo or puff pastry) and pairs well with cheese (emmental, brie, gouda).
Tasted March 12, 2018.

From the William Hill Estate Winery, overlooking the Silverado Bench, comes the chic Chardonnay 2016. Golden in color, it will envelope your nose with aromas of yellow apple, pineapple, lemon, almond and butterscotch. This warm, lovely Chardonnay reveals itself with the taste of yellow apple, dry apricot, almond and a butterscotch finish. This California Chardonnay surprised me with its delicate acidity and gentle dose of oak. Will pairs well with Thai food.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Medium gold colour with pronounced aromas. Poached pears, baked apples, starfruit, banana and smokey pineapple. Flavours show peach, apricot, toasted almonds and vanilla cream pie. Medium plus acidity balances nicely with lingering creamy custard sweetness. Nice to pair with buttered crab cakes and shellfish. 88 points - tasted March 2018

Lots of green apple, pear, and almost a hint of ripe banana, Fuller bodied, smooth, with ripe fruit on the palate, along with honeyed and slightly nutty notes, almost a hint of caramel. Balanced acidity. Medium finish. Pair with turkey dinner or pork.

If you like oaky and buttery california chardonnay, this is a good QPR choice. Full body, very oily on the palate with rich fruits
|From California's North Coast, William Hill 2016 is a dry, medium-bodied Chardonnay with soft citrus and ripe stonefruit flavours on the balance, Rounded and smooth with balanced acidity. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews|
