Hess Select Chardonnay 2014


SKU 1125


Crisp and clean, bright with wonderfully balanced acidity and the signature flavors of Monterey, including lemon-lime and a touch of apple.  This wine's natural acidity complements tangy, spicy foods and shows well with the richness of creamier dishes. Enjoy with Asian chicken salad, grilled albacore tuna with melted anchovy butter and lemon, or a creamy pasta dish with Portobello mushrooms.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay that sees some oak and malolactic fermentation is also from Monterey. This wine displays more tropical fruit, such as pineapple, a touch of peach and citrus blossom. This is a slightly richer wine, and the oak clearly adds some spice, but doesn't really interfere with the emphasis on fruit and forwardness. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.
