Winemaker's Notes:

The wine opens with seductive aromas of mineral-spice and green apple. Rich yet refreshingly crisp, the 2008 Chardonnay has flavors of honeydew melon and Bosc pear complemented by hints of vanillin oak.

This Chardonnay is an excellent match for Caesar salad, roasted salmon or rotisserie chicken.

My Notes:

About Hayman & Hill:

With this brand, David Hayman and Dennis Hill have utilized their collective experience, working with growers to craft wine from the most prestigious California wine regions. Convinced that they could source grapes from the best California appellations, David and Dennis have utilized resources at their disposal to make top notch, single varietal, appellation designated wines.

This portfolio of fine wines speaks to their passion of making wines for a label worthy of their respective surnames, Hayman & Hill. David Hayman enjoys seventeen years of strong international winemaking experience. He spent five years overseeing production across eleven Hardys wineries throughout Australia, and currently serves as Blackstone Winery’s Senior Vice President of Operations, overseeing all California winemaking operations. Dennis Hill has over twenty five years of winemaking experience with many leading Sonoma wineries. In 1994, Dennis joined the Blackstone Winery and for the past nine years, has delivered a wine profile that strikes a chord with consumers. Dennis is the Chief Winemaker for the Blackstone Winery and works in Sonoma County.

The Hayman & Hill Winemaker’s Collection was released in October, 2003. It is comprised of a selection of reserve wines from best known appellations with individual selection numbers.
