HARTFORD COURT CHARDONNAY, FOUR HEARTS VINEYARDS, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2016
Already in bottle, the 2016 Hartford Court Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard opens with lemon tart, pink grapefruit, pineapple and ripe apple notes with touches of nutmeg and croissant. Medium to full-bodied, rich and with a pleasantly oily texture, it delivers ripe tropical fruit flavors and a long, creamy finish. 1,600 cases were produced.
NVWE Notes: This tightly-wound, notably youthful Chardonnay is destined for greatness. The nose is a precise, concentrated, vivid mix of white peach, tarte tatin, pineapple core, lemon curd, baking-spice, hazelnut, bees wax and creme brulee scents. It is just as intense on the palate, where chiseled flavors of peach, baked apple, lemon drop, pineapple sorbet, orange zest, pie crust, meringue, nutmeg and hazelnut nougat fan-out. This finish is super-long and perfectly focused and the flavors grow grander with airing and are better yet on day two. Expect at least three years of steady improvement. 900 cases made.
