The Hess Collection Chardonnay Napa Valley Su'Skol 2008
Su'skol Vineyard's close proximity to the San Francisco Bay, with its marine influences of morning fog and afternoon breezes, creates an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. This has aromas of cantaloupe, guava, pineapple followed by a concentrated and rich palate of Asian pear, with a citrus finish. The bright acidity and creamy mouthfeel are well-balanced in the mid-palate. 30% new French oak gives a hint of vanilla in the background. An elegant, bright wine with asian pear and tangerine flavours that pair with spicy dishes and highlight the richness of seafood.
Great, golden apple nose. A nice chardonnay! - WS Grand Tour 2011
Pear, apple with a hint of oak. Mild acidity on the finish. Good daily drinker or with food. I'm not a big Chardonnay fan, but I do like this one.
At blue point grille very nice
