The Father of California Chardonnay, Hanzel’s 2015 “Refreshing” Chardonnay Demonstrates the Beauty of New World Chardonnay Made in Classic Burgundian Style. This a Must-Have For Chardonnay Lovers and Napa History Buffs.
Enjoy California Chardonnay? Thank James Zellerbach, The founder of Hanzell who planted Chardonnay vines at a time when there were around 100 acres planted in California. He introduced techniques winemakers take for granted today, like the use of French Oak barrels and temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation.
RP 93 (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)
The 2015 Chardonnay is a little reticent to begin, slowing unfurling to reveal lemon tart, apple pie and nectarine notions with hints of honeyed toast, cashews and orange blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and elegantly styled with many citrus and stone fruit layers accented by savory suggestions and a satiny texture, finishing long and mineral laced.
WE 92 (Wine Enthusiast)
There’s a note of barrel influence on the nose, a heartiness of oak that weaves within the greater whole as the wine develops. Smooth, rounded richness, a mix of baked apple and hazelnut, provide a textured balance of flavor within lovely highlights of lemongrass and ginger.
