Winemaker's Notes

Enticing aromas of citrus and white flowers are the initial notes, but with time the wine unfolds to offer marzipan, pear, and toasted almond. A rich vanilla-honey scent gives an impression of sweetness to the overall aromatic profile. In the mouth, the inherent richness builds over time with classic Hanzell flavors of lemon, chamomile and clean mineral emanating from a tautly wound core structure which hints at what will develop with further aging.

Critical Acclaim

"James Zellerbach planted the first four acres of Chardonnay on this property in teh Mayacamas Mountains in 1953. Now in the hands of the de Brye family, the estate includes 32 acres of chardonnay, 70 percent from the Wente clone, which produces small berries at this site. Winemaker Michael McNeill fermented and aged one third of the wine in new French oak, allowing malolactic; the balance he fermented in stainless steel, without malolactic, aging it in older oak barrels. The blend is savory, with moutwatering flavors of orange and lemon and higher tones of orange blossom and peach. The wine's leesy austerity and fragrant restraint keep it fresh, lasting for days after it's opened. A California classic, for any fresh catch."

"Sleek and focused, with a grainy edge to the citrus, pear, apple and spice notes that are intense, vibrant, tight and focused. Slow to unfold, but a good cellar choice. Drink now through 2016."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
