Hkg Chardonnay Russian River Valley Six Barrel Bridge Selection 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

We are excited to introduce our first barrel selection of Estate Chardonnay. We chose the vines in the bridge block area that are planted along side a meandering creek in highly sandy soils. The ample drainage results in lusciously concentrated aromas and flavors of apple, Asian pear accented with ripe, juicy apricot a perfect example of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Our reserve style Chardonnay finishes with a creamy mouth feel and framed with French oak.

From planting, growing and harvesting to crushing, processing, bottling and labeling, our award-winning HKG Estate wines are a result of the meticulous care given to the fruit by vineyard manager David Smith merged with a progressive vision for what ends up in the bottle from rising star winemaker Chuck Mansfield. HKG Estate Wines come exclusively from fruit grown on our 250-acre estate located amongst the Russian River Valley’s finest producers. We are geographically blessed with a variety of soil types and microclimates that allow for vast differentiation and an array of flavor profiles even within blocks of the same varietals. Our first release was the 2006 bottling of HKG Estate Pinot Noir, and we’re proud to have garnered consistent acclaim and high marks in successive vintages from reviewers including the Wine Spectator and the PinotReport. Today we make 5 different varietals: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Rosé of Pinot Noir and our newest creation Sparkling Rosé of Pinot Noir, Read less
