Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Our golden-hued Chardonnay shows a nose of tree fruit - pears and golden delicious apples. The Hahn SLH Chardonnay gives way to complex and changing aromas of vanilla, mushroom and slightly toasted butter. A swirl reveals soft spices of cinnamon and nutmeg, and as you sip, you discover a burst of guava and apricot. The viscous mouthfeel of this medium-bodied, lush, delight finishes with an array of island fruit flavors.

Hahn Estate:
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.

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

I picked this up at Whole Foods, having no idea what to expect except that the card said it was "buttery", which I like in a Chardonnay. I served it with fresh pasta and I was blown away by how much flavor it brought out of the pasta. Very creamy, but lots of fruit flavor and plenty bright. It was pleasant to drink on it's own but when paired with the pasta it was amazing.
