95 Points - limited
Discover this up-and-coming Sonoma Coast superstar while its still available! One of the top-rated California Chardonnays of the vintage.
previous vintage 95 Points Robert Parker: "From a well-known site favored by the Chardonnay cognoscenti of Northern California, the Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard is a relatively small cuvée of 200 cases aged in the same manner as the other Chardonnays and fermented with indigenous yeasts. This site is at a 900-foot elevation and the vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone on the Goldridge sandy soils of the region. More tangerine, nectarine, lemon oil and citrus are found in this crisp, zesty Chardonnay that also moves toward tropical fruits on the palate. Sexy, full-bodied and a stunner, drink it over the next 5-7 years."
This beauty comes from Robbie Meyer, former assistant at Peter Michael winery. Super-small production and one of the best Chardonnays we've found in California!
