2001 Hess Select Chardonnay
The 2000 vintage starts a new decade with a near perfect year for Chardonnay. Our vines gave us good yields and high quality. The weather at harvest allowed the grapes to reach full maturity. The resulting wine shows full fruit character of ripe pineapples and hints of citrus backed by toasty French Oak.
