Notes from the Winemaker:
“We’re on to something with our Hess Select Chardonnay. It’s a new take on the most popular wine around, tasting good on its own, paired with appetizers, a variety of meals prepared at home or out for date night. Crisp and clean with bright wonderfully balanced acidity, the signature lemon-lime and a touch of apple flavors of Monterey shine through. ” – Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking

Monterey’s combination of moderate climate and marine influences from the Pacific Ocean keep the grapes on an even keel, able to develop fully ripe flavors that tend to show some lemon and lime zest, a touch of ripe apple and tropical aromas and flavors.

Ratings & Reviews
Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Fresh Key lime aromas meet with touches of guava, plumeria and lemongrass on the steely nose of this bottling. There's a great sizzle of acidity to the sip, leaning a bit more toward Sauvignon Blanc than Chardonnay, with flavors of guava gum, green papaya, lime and grass." - Matt Kettmann (2/1/2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Ripe and filled with pear flavors that are creamy, lush and well-spiced. A nice one-note wine. Drink now. 203,095 cases made." – KM (Jun 15, 2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Offering up notes of baked apples and ripe peaches with toasty/yeasty nuances, the 2016 Chardonnay has a medium body and good core of uncomplicated oak-kissed stone fruit, finishing on a spicy note." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Oct 2017)
