Tasting Notes

The Hayes Valley line of wines honours California’s classic fruit-forward style with marked finesse and balance, and the 2018 Chardonnay, made with grapes from the coastal Monterey region and aged in 20% new oak, showcases these qualities. Aromas of pineapple, apples and fresh baked bread. A hint of vanilla. A very light overall aroma of cedar. Pineapple, green apple, lemon/lime on the palate. A hint of toasty oak and a slightly creamy mouth feel.

The Producer

Clos LaChance

After the acquisition of independence from Spain, Mexico divided the Santa Clara Valley into ranchos in 1821. The Clos LaChance property was a part of Rancho San Francisco de las Llagas, which was owned by Carlos Antonio Castro in 1828. Castro planted over 500 acres of vineyards and orchards. In the late 1800’s, a pioneer named Martin Murphy purchased a 9,000 acre parcel from Castro and named the area, San Martin, after patron Saint Martin. When Murphy died, the property was inherited by his family and later purchased by Lazard Lion. It wasn’t until 1921 when the property was sold to Lion’s business partner, Frank Hayes, that the area adapted the name “Hayes Valley.” Unfortunately, the vineyards eventually succumbed to prohibition. In the 1990’s, new vines were planted, the same vines that remain today. Studded with native oak trees and surrounded by rolling hills covered with vineyards, Clos LaChance is truly an enchanted venue to behold. The region is also an ideal climate for growing grapes — cool, foggy nights followed by warm sunny days. The stunning views coupled with high quality wines, it was only fitting that a brand was named to honor the famous Hayes Valley.
