This is a new vineyard designated offering from 100% Hanzell Selection grown in a low land Meadow contiguous to the Santa Rosa Creek. It is dry farmed each year and requires extensive shoot and crop thinning each year due to the extreme fertile conditions. The result is the most fruit forward, with underlining tropical flavors, then any of our Chardonnays.

VinousThe 2013 Chardonnay The Meadows has a real sense of phenolic weight and density, yet the flavors remain bright, focused and beautifully nuanced throughout. Lemon peel, hazelnut, butter, spice and mint blossom as this beautifully textured, layered Chardonnay shows off its notable personality and pure class.

Wine AdvocateAnother top value, the 2013 Chardonnay The Meadows, which comes from the lowest elevation Chardonnay vineyard the Hansels own. The soils are classic loamy, sandy, Goldridge soils, and the wine sees 40% new oak. It possesses a European/Corton-Charlemagne style with hints of ripe peaches, pineapples and orange blossoms in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style with good acidity. Drink now-2018.
