Hirsch Vineyards Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Gravel and stone adorn a fresh, focused and tension-filled palate of great acidity and coastal influence in this estate white, made in small quantities. The oak influence is minimal and well integrated while the fruit takes on a complex citrus-driven intensity and lemony finish.
The lightly hued 2019 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers lots of minerality as well as terrific citrus, mint, and sappy green herb-like aromatics. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is medium-bodied, has bright acidity, and a salty, marine-like hint on the finish. It's beautifully done and well worth seeking out. It should have 7-8 years or more of longevity, probably longer.
Juicy and filled with vibrant dried apple and ripe pear flavors that linger with creamy richness. Pastry accents linger on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2023. 665 cases made.
