94 POINTS - TASTING PANEL

Hahn SLH Chardonnay greets the nose with citrus, stone fruit and hints of banana and vanilla. A viscous mouth fill, medium acidity with hints of pear and vanilla.  Our vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands experience a long and dry growing season that results in wines with remarkable depth, complexity, and ripe fruit flavors. Our SLH vineyards – Lone Oak, Smith, Doctor’s, and Hook – are planted on a narrow bench at elevations ranging from 200 to 1,200 feet above sea level. Here, plentiful sun and well-drained soils aid concentration and flavor development.  WINERY

Chamomile, almond butter and cookie dough are complex aromas from this exquisite white wine grown on Hahn Family Wines Lone Oak and Smith Vineyards. Aged for 10 months in 35% new French oak, 65% neutral oak, the resulting balance and elegance is apparent. Mouthfeel is sumptuous but not necessarily creamy. Acid is lean and tight, with a line of minerality whispering on the sidelines. Lemon oil and orange blossom present mid-palate and it remains graceful to the finish.  TASTING PANEL
