Hess Collection Chardonnay 2013
This is a wine I love sharing with people because it's the very definition of versatile. It's wonderful on its own, with appetizers, or as an integral part of nearly any menu. The Su'skol vineyard is carefully farmed to emphasize fruit with wonderful acidity and balance, crisp and clean and clearly showing the impact of the moderate temperatures influenced by nearby San Pablo Bay. The multiple clones, including the aromatic musqué, result in a wine that shows 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. There's a reason Chardonnay is a popular wine, and this is it. This wine pairs well with poached or grilled seafood, shrimp or crab with spicy aioli, baby greens tossed in citrus honey vinaigrette, avocados, fruit salsa, shaved fennel, tangerines and triple crème cheeses.
