Hartford Court Four Hearts Chardonnay 2007
Chardonnay from Sonoma County, California
Wine Style Guide
Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.
Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.
Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
Complex aromas and flavors of white peach, citrus blossom, Asian pear and candied lemon give way to a rich and weighty mid-palate, followed by a very long, exotic spice infused finish.
"The 2007 Chardonnay Four Hearts, aged in 40% new oak and 100% barrel-fermented, boasts a creamy, creme brulee-like character along with oodles of orange blossom, nectarine, and crushed rock notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning richness and purity, and zesty acidity. Like so many of the 2007s, its sensational fragrance and fruit purity are dazzling. All of these Chardonnays have 4-6 years of aging potential, perhaps even longer.
The Wine Advocate
"Light yellow-gold. Mineral-driven aromas of Meyer lemon and apple, with a mounting floral honey quality. Fleshy and smooth, offering gently sweet orchard fruit flavors and good mineral lift. Open-knit and easy to drink, with very good finishing breadth and cling."
