HANZELL CHARDONNAY ESTATE SONOMA VALLEY 2012
NVWE Notes: The Hanzel vineyard has produced great, long aging Chardonnays since the 1950s, and this is yet another example. The nose is tightly wrapped, deep and packed with concentrated fresh red apple, white peach, Calimyrna fig, beeswax, lemon zest, orange blossom and mineral aromas that are perfectly replicated by the flavors. The fruit and mineral mix is almost heady on the palate, yet strong minerality and mouth-watering fruit acidity create an iron structure which both elevates the wines style and lightens it’s apparent weight. The finish is lingering and bone dry and that makes the wine a brilliant food companion right now, yet this beauty is at least five years from it’s full expression. 3360 cases produced.
