The Hess Collection Chardonnay Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Frische Aromatik von Geissblatt, Zitrusfrüchten und grünem Apfel, die sich auch am Gaumen widerspiegelt, gepaart mit einer feinen Mineralität. Am Gaumen vollmundig, dennoch frisch durch eine lebhafte Säure. Ein wunderbar ausbalancierter Wein.

A 2010 Chardonnay from Napa Valley, California. Yellow straw in color. Fruits hints of lemons, peaches and tangerine with a long finish on the palette and crisp acidity. The time for this wine is now until 2015. Best served chilled to 50 degrees, and served with cold pasta salad and seared scallops.

Excellent with crawfish and shrimp. Crisp and buttery at once. Extremely approachable. Did not get the fruitiness the other reviewer noted.
