Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Chardonnay North Slope Vineyard is scented of toast, flit and roasted almonds with a core of baked apples and touches of honey. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and satiny, slowly unfolding its savory flavors and finishing very long. 910 cases produced."

The Producer

Walter Hansel

Walter Hansel was a lifelong wine enthusiast who had the vision to plant his estate's original 250 vines in 1978. Today, Stephen, Walter's son, has taken up where his father left off, pursuing his vision of producing world-class Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, all from the Russian River Valley.

The winery uses only natural yeast during fermentation. Fining and filtration are minimal. The Chardonnays are whole cluster fermented and gently pressed to extract the juice. The cooperage varies from year-to-year, cuvée-to-cuvée, but none of the wine is aged on entirely new oak. One and two year-old barrels are always employed.
