About Our Ratings

Hanzell 2012 Chardonnay, Sebella, Sonoma Valley
Hanzell in Sonoma is renowned for their incredible, age-worthy Chardonnay. Founded in the 1950's by Ambassador J.D. Zellerbach with 200 hillside acres in the Mayacamas Range. The wines have a devoted following and rarely appear beyond the winery's mailing list but here is something new that's both available and affordable. Produced from the estate's young vines vineyards, Sabella Chard offers a forward and youthful expression. The juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks. Just prior to completion, the wine is racked into French oak barrels where it finishes fermentation and ages sur-lie for six months. Malolactic fermentation is inhibited to preserve the fresh, floral qualities and lively acidity. It shows light floral and citrus, pear and apple all framed by classic Hanzell minerality. On the palate there is nice weight and fullness, with flavors of green apple, tangerine, white peach and minerals with focused, bracing acidity and a long lemony finish.

    Comments about Hanzell 2011 Chardonnay, Sabella, Sonoma Valley:

    This is really a true expression of Chardonnay. Fragrant aromas of green apple and citrus zest give way to similar flavors with a nice addition of minerality and floral notes. For those that don't like the over-oaked Chards, this one is for you. It possesses lively acidity while maintaining structure and weight on the palate. The finish is clean and crisp, killer Chard from front to back.
