Patz & Hall Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Embodying the rich diversity of world-class vineyards in the acclaimed Sonoma Coast appellation, and the talents of the gifted winegrowers who farm these sites, we are pleased to unveil our premier vintage of Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Combining fruit from a who’s who of the appellation’s most renowned vineyards, this cuvée includes Durell Vineyard’s rich, viscous texture, Zio Tony Ranch’s signature stone fruit flavors of peach and apricot, the tropical fruit, Fuji apple and white flower aromatics from Dutton Ranch’s heirloom clones, and the minerality and crisp acidity of grapes grown on the cold, windswept slopes of Gap’s Crown Vineyard. These elements are accented by additional layers of tangerine, Bosc pear, peach and hazelnut, resulting in a lithe, layered and complex wine that harmoniously combines the finest attributes of great Sonoma Coast winegrowing.

Lightly spicy, chalky, with a touch of caramel and a floral note of balsam and perfume. On entry this is rich but with good, tense focus. There’s nicely integrated wood running through the core of this very ripe fruit, but it’s playing second fiddle. The finish is really succulent with deep, ripe fruit character that melds together orchard and citrus fruits on a long, slightly caramelly finish. A rich pure style perfect for a roast veal roast. 90pts.

WE 92pts. - According to the Wine Enthusiast: This is an austere Chardonnay whose minerality and acidity star. That's not to say it's not fruity. It has pineapple and green apple flavors, with oak and lees adding richer complexities. Still, it's a firm, Chablis-style wine, and a very good one that defines the elegant sleekness of the Sonoma Coast.
