Patz & Hall Chardonnay Mendocino County Alder Springs Vineyard 2003
The Alder Springs Vineyard Chardonnay evokes aromas of pear, white flower, and honeycomb coupled with rich oily textures and appealing minerality in the mouth. The 2003 vintage received high praise upon its original release: 94 Points - The Wine Advocate 91 Points - International Wine Cellar 90 Points - Wine Spectator "Full-bodied and intense, with notions of citrus oils, and tropical fruits, along with tremendous purity and crisp acidity, this deep, textured, full throttle, impeccably-balanced Chardonnay can be enjoyed over the next 3-5 years." - Robert Parker
Established in 1988, Patz & Hall embodies the shared vision and collective expertise of four talented friends - Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moses and Heather Patz. Together, this dedicated team of individuals has turned a desire to craft benchmark, single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs into one of California's most celebrated artisan wineries.
