Robert Parker Jr: “The 2015 Chardonnay is a little reticent to begin, slowing unfurling to reveal lemon tart, apple pie and nectarine notions with hints of honeyed toast, cashews and orange blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and elegantly styled with many citrus and stone fruit layers accented by savory suggestions and a satiny texture, finishing long and mineral laced.”Winery: “Since our first vintage in 1957, we have learned that the wines produced from our estate tend to offer consistent flavor profiles and development year over year. This Drinking Window illustration provides visual flavor profiles and is intended to help guide your decisions on when to open and drink one of our wines or hold them for the future. We encourage you to try our wines while young and through all the stages of evolution to find your own Hanzell “sweet spot”. This time period will be different for everyone but will remain fairly constant vintage to vintage.Classic floral notes of chamomile and honeysuckle along with green pear, honeydew melon, papaya, granny smith apple and kumquat abound in this chardonnay. Rich and full upon entry, there is a tension between the creaminess and the mouthwatering citrus, which lead to a long, luxurious and powerful finish.”Bottle750ml, corkVarietal100% ChardonnayAlcohol14.1%pH3.22Total Acidity7.0 g/LAging12 months in 60 gallon French Oak barrelsRegionSonoma Valley, California
