Hahn Estates Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The clean golden color of this full-spectrum Chardonnay stands out and enhances the experience created by the distinct aromas of apricot, peach and pineapple. balanced on a delicate thread of oak, the palate is pleased with a lush mixture of green apple and tropical fruits that persist well into the finish on a platform of crisp acidity. Screaming for rich seafood, this wine pairs exceptionally well with crab cakes on creamed corn with carrot slices, poached halibut, pan fried petrale sole, steamed lobster with buttered corn on the cob, or even comfort food like mom's chicken casserole.

The spectacular beauty of California 's central coast is probably the best-known region in all of California for its unique lifestyle. Monterey County's dramatic ocean scenery, historic communities, artistic culture, verdant pine forests, and bountiful agriculture have beckoned adventure-seekers, seafarers, artists, writers and vacationers for over 100 years. And the 99 miles of breathtaking Pacific coastline is something no other California county can boast. With an inspiration to raise Monterey wines to the highest level, the wines of Hahn Estates are created with a philosophy that all great wines are special – akin to the region they were grown in. The Hahn wines celebrate everything that is Monterey – unique in thought, style and setting. Wines of Monterey Distinction. The Smith Ranch had been a horse ranch, while the neighboring Hook Ranch had raised cattle for generations. With their prime location in the Santa Lucia Highlands overlooking the Salinas Valley, these ranches-turned-vineyards presented ideal growing conditions for growing premium varietal fruit. Smith & Hook Winery released its first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon to high acclaim in 1980. In 1991, Nicky created the Hahn Estates brand to showcase supple, accessible, and attractively priced wines from the family's Monterey County vineyards. In German, “Hahn” means “Rooster” and for this reason a rooster embellishes the Hahn Estates label, honoring the Hahn family's European heritage. And while Smith & Hook remains the first wine produced by the Hahn family, Hahn Estates is the primary wine brand produced by the Hahns and the winery is now proudly known as “Hahn Estates / Smith & Hook Winery.” Read less

Expect aromas of apricot, peach and pineapple with a palate of green apple and tropical fruit that finishes with crisp acidity. This is a complex wine that will pair with rich seafood, such as crab cakes, or a poached halibut or pan fried sole. Because of its weight and acidity, the Hahn will easily stand up to roasted chicken.
