The Su’skol vineyard is carefully farmed to emphasize fruit with wonderful acidity and balance. Crisp and clean our Chardonnay showcases the moderate temperatures influenced by nearby San Pablo Bay. The multiple clones display an aromatic musqué, resulting in aromas and flavors of apple, white pear and a slight touch of tropical fruits, accented by aromas of honeysuckle. We ferment only a small portion in new French Oak, and allow just a portion (28%) to undergo secondary fermentation, showcasing fruit and a round, rich mouthfeel from bâttonage over several weeks.

The 2018 Hess Collection Chardonnay shows richness from start to finish. This wine exhibits dried earth, ripe fruit, and oak in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with a richly sauced roast chicken over noodles.
