Hanzell Vineyards, Chardonnay, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast
Individual judges' scores: Mark Andrew 91 Stephen Brook 93 Andy Howard MW 90 A nose that captures the attention: chiselled, fresh and elegant. Oak is subtle and integrated with a mineral edge and some phenolic grip on the palate. Green citrus and basil notes bring complexity. Understated, yet modern with a pleasant finish.
