Walter Hansel North Slope Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2011 Chardonnay North Slope is one of the most reticent wines in this lineup. There is quite a bit of density and richness in the fruit, but the wine still needs another 6-12 months to come together, which is not unusual for Hansel's Chardonnays. Today, the North Slope is mostly about potential, and there certainly seems to be plenty of that here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (Apr 2013)

Walter Hansel Winery is located in Sonoma County at the southern tip of the Russian River Valley near the Sebastopol hills. It is bordered to the north by the Santa Rosa Creek and to the west by a tributary of the Russian River known as the Laguna de Santa Rosa. This location is ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the nights and mornings are cooled by coastal fog yet the mid-days warm up to perfect grape ripening temperatures. Temperature swings of 40 degrees are very common. Read less
