Hanzell 2018 Chardonnay "Estate" Sonoma County


"Beautiful apple and crushed stone with white pepper and lemon curd on the nose. Full-bodied with layers of fruit and creamy, light yogurt undertones to the tangy dried-citrus aftertaste. Rich, lively and complex. Solid and structured. Very drinkable now, but better after 2024 and beyond." James Suckling 95 points 

"The 2018 Chardonnay is a magical, complex wine that really blossoms beautifully with a few hours of air. Layered and deep, with tons of nuance, the 2018 remains light on its feet and quite understated. Hints of apricot, tangerine, chamomile and dried flowers slowly open with a bit of coaxing. It's the sort of wine that requires several hours of undivided attention." Vinous 94 points 

"Structured and graceful from beginning to end, this white is floral and offers depth and length. From some vines still on St. George rootstock and fermented in both oak and stainless-steel, it retains lively acidity and vibrant layers of salty stone, Meyer lemon and green apple." Wine Enthusiast 94 points 

"Svelte, with minerally snap to the pure-tasting McIntosh apple, Bosc pear and apricot tart flavors. The juicy finish offers hints of buttered toast and light spicy accents. Drink now through 2026." Wine Spectator 93 points
