Intro to Hahn Estates Chardonnay Monterey –
Hahn Estates Chardonnay from Monterey USA has a lovely aroma reminiscent of golden apple, tropical fruit and toasted oak with flavours of tropical fruit and vanilla and is medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The grapes for the Hahn Estates Chardonnay were grown primarily in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and the development of vibrant flavors. The gravelly soils of the appellation allow excellent drainage, enhancing flavor intensity. Initial scents of apricot and banana segue into a notes of lemon wafer and vanilla. Medium bodied and dry on the palate, a note that evokes essence of granny smith apple contributes a snap of acidity to the wine’s clean finish.
The producer –
Hahn Family Wines, formally known as Hahn Estates, produce a range of wines from five vineyards located in the Santa Lucia Highlands and Monterey County appellations. This region boasts the most varied climatic conditions of any region in California and produces fruit with exceptional varietal intensity, flavour, depth and structure.
Hahn Family Wines is owned and operated by Nicky Hahn and his wife Gaby who moved to Monterey in the mid 1970s. They now produce 400,000 cases of wine per year making them the fifth largest producer by volume amongst America’s family owned private wineries. They purchased the Smith & Hook Winery in 1980, laying the groundwork for their long-term commitment to bring out the potential of Monterey. With their prime location in the Santa Lucia Highlands overlooking the Salinas Valley, these ranches turned vineyards presented ideal weather conditions for growing premium varietal fruit. Since 1980 the Hahn family has cultivated their hillside vineyards and are committed to making rich, supple wines which over deliver on quality yet are perfect for everyday enjoyment.
