2013 Green Acres Hill Chardonnay

TASTING NOTES

Our lone vineyard-designated Chardonnay, Green Acres Hill is consistently wonderful and wonderfully consistent every year. While faithfully telling the vintage story, the wine retains its personality no matter the weather and is a constant joy to work with. Low-yielding Old Wente once again provided tiny, intensely flavored berries and admirably concentrated juice.

The 2013 is broad shouldered and precocious, but expertly balanced. You’ll find layer after layer of lemon curd, citrus rind, green apple and crème brûlée in both aroma and flavor, all finishing with crisp mineral snap. White Burgundy fans typically find a lot to love in this bottling.

With just 28% new French oak, the wine derives natural power from the source and has been a tremendous crowd pleaser throughout our barrel tastings all year long. We are excited to follow its evolution over the coming years and hope that you, too, will find it a corner in your cellar and join us on the journey.
