Crossbarn By Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced using hand-harvested fruit from carefully selected vineyards within the Sonoma Coast appellation, CrossBarn Chardonnay offers structure and weight in balance with pure concentrated fruit. Whole-cluster, direct to press 80% fermented in tank, 20% neutral French oak barrels Native and selected yeasts. 100% malolactic fermentation. Unfined. Pale yellow in color, this refreshing chardonnay is fragrant with white flowers, pear and citrus. The mouth-filling palate opens with crisp flavors of Fuji apple, white peach and lemon blossoms. Layers of mineral and citrus notes and a touch of vanillin grace a crisp, racy finish.

Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary. Read less

This unfined bottling provides a more raw look at Chardonnay, and it doesn't disappoint. Intriguing aromas of peach, melon and lemon. Palate still has a bit of dissolved carbon dioxide, giving a bit of lift to the wine. It's creamy and yeasty, with peach, lemon zest and a long finish.
