Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay presents perfumed aromas of vanillin, and crisp green apples complemented by fresh pineapple, kiwi and white peach flavors. A supple and complex fruit-dominated mid-palate is enhanced by a subtle gravel and wet stone notes in the finish.

About Hartford:

Hartford Family Winery was founded in 1993 as a result of Don and Jennifer Hartford's appreciation for the wines, the people, and the unique vineyards near their Russian River Valley home. Located in the Sonoma County town of Forestville, the winery is about 15 miles from the cool Pacific Coast.

Making delicious wines of high personality is directly related to the difficult locations of the Hartford family's vineyard sources, the limited production of their bottlings and the varietals they use. "Character through adversity" is an expression that the Hartford family believes to apply to both people and grapevines, and they feel that surviving adversity builds character, and personality, in both. The Hartford Family makes wines under two marks, Hartford Court and Hartford.
