The Estate Chardonnay is a blend of all of the blocks in the Hansel Estate Vineyard. It shows the diversity of expositions and closes that the site offers. It does have, however, consist of a high percentage of the original plantings from 1976 and 1989. Large berries and clusters contribute to its great acidity and depth.
Robert Parker 91 Points "The Hansel wines capture the essence of the Russian River in their exuberant, forward personalities. In my view, the Chardonnays are reference points for what Wente clone Chardonnay is all about. Quality is high across the board and pricing remains incredibly consumer friendly throughout the range, making these some of the most delicious and compelling Sonoma wines readers will come across."
The 2019 The Estate Vineyard is bright, beautifully focused and so energetic. Fresh, nuanced and full of energy, the 2019 Estate offers a fabulous introduction to these wines. Bright citrus and floral notes abound. The Estate is typically one of the last wines to be picked, but in 2019 it was the first. This is a positively stellar wine.
