2014 Hahn SLH Chardonnay
Retail Price: $50.00
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.
To make our 2014 Hahn SLH Chardonnay, our winemakers selected fruit that yielded expressive aromas and flavors. After the fruit was carefully sorted, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed and fermented in small, French oak barrels. We then hand-stirred the wine on the lees every week for the 9 months this wine rested in barrel. When the wine was ready to be bottled, we chose only the barrels we felt best exemplified the aromas, flavors, and structure of the Santa Lucia Highlands.
