Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Monterey Chardonnay opens with ripe tropical fruits that include pineapple, passion fruit, and guava. The aroma opens further to crisp apple, melon, and pear cocktail. This medium bodied wine is layered with flavors of nectarine and pear and has a zesty citrus finish.

The tropical fruit notes in this Chardonnay make it a perfect match for light seafood such as grilled basil marinated halibut with a chopped tomato salad, sauteed shrimp, and spicier Asian dishes. Richer dishes such as creamy crab and vegetable pasta will be enlivened by the crisp finish. The fresh, bright character of Hess Monterey Chardonnay makes this wine equally attractive to sip on its own.
