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.

Nothing great, but still a solid group pleaser and quite drinkable.

The Hess Collection Chardonnay comes from our estate vineyard near the San Francisco Bay. Its micro-climate creates a perfect environment to grow Chardonnay with its cool mornings and gentle afternoon

The Hess Collection Chardonnay comes from our estate vineyard near the San Francisco Bay. Its micro-climate creates a perfect environment to grow Chardonnay with its cool mornings and gentle afternoon breezes. Signature proprietary flavors and crisp acidity originate from the vineyard plantings of a unique blend of seven rootstocks and nine hand selected clones of chardonnay. Rich and lush, a palate of pear and vanilla flavors is balanced with nice acidity that evolves through the finish.
