Winemaker's Notes:

Goldgelb mit honigfarbener Mitte. Reife Zitronen und Ananas in der fruchtigen Nase, feine Vanillenote dahinter. Zartcremiger Gaumen mit viel Birnen und weisser Schokolade, elegant bis ins füllige Finale. Trinkvergnügen pur.

Good chardonnay covered up with far too much oak.

Nice. Lemon pie, oak. Solid acid. Good for the price.

A little tight on the nose. Nice texture. Not too acidic or over-oaked. Unable to decipher specific fruit flavors, almost floral.

I thought this wine was a nice wine for the price. It went great with my seafood gumbo.

"This Hess Select Chardonnay brings fruit aromas of freshly cut pineapple, pear, and lemon blossom with notes of vanilla, caramel, and a light touch of oak. In the mouth, the fruit continues showing ripe pear, peach, and pineapple with a great texture on the mid-palate leading into a crisp, bright finish. Given the fresh fruity style, this wine is best consumed in the next two years." -Winery

Mittleres Gelb mit grünlichen Reflexen. Im Aroma tropische Früchte (Mango und Bana-nen), im Hintergrund Birne und Melone. Fülliger Auftakt, reiche Textur, schöne Harmonie.
