Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
"Pale yellow-gold. Mineral- and spice-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by floral and tarragon topnotes. Penetrating Meyer lemon, pear and white peach flavors unfurl and take on a spicy ginger note with air. Finishes tight and long, with lingering mineral and spice notes and a late touch of vanilla. 30% new French oak." Josh Raynolds Vinous Media 90 points Drink 2023-39
Lemon and apple aromas lead into struck stone and turned earth on the nose of this appellation blend. There's a sharp and lush pineapple flavor to the palate, with more wet stone balancing those riper notes.
Delivers a core of pear and citrus flavors defined by dried chamomile, honeysuckle and spices, with fresh acidity. Drink now. 8,000 cases made.
