BREWER-CLIFTON CHARDONNAY, HAPGOOD VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2014
Offering tons of ripe, caramelized orchard fruits, honeycomb and crushed rock, the 2014 Chardonnay Hapgood is full-bodied, concentrated and unctuously textured, with notable freshness, no hard edges and a great finish. This is a rich, gorgeous Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming decade or more.
The 2014 Chardonnay Hapgood shows the more exotic, flamboyant side of Chardonnay. A host of tropical fruit, mango, apricot jam and butter give the wine much of its shape and personality. Overt and opulent, yet also remarkably vivid, the Hapgood is superb today. Drink 2016 - 2021 Antonio Galloni Sep 2016
NVWE Notes: A true brother to Grand Cru Chablis in character, this stunner is a sibling in intensity as well. The nose is a steel-edged layering of white peach, quince, nectarine, spiced green apple, lemon curd, grapefruit sorbet, flint and white pepper scents. It is rich in texture yet vibrant and cutting-dry on the palate, with deeply-etched minerality thoroughly dominating fruity-spicy flavors that include fresh apple, quince, dried peach, Calimyrna fig, preserved lemon, pineapple core, orange blossom and brioche. Extremely long, if cold-hearted all the way, it is a perfect companion to raw oysters and should be just as trilling with steamed mussels or Linguine con Vongole. 6 barrels produced.
