(From 2014 Vintage) We’re on to something with our Hess Select Chardonnay. It’s a new take on the most popular wine around, tasting good on its own, paired with appetizers, a variety of meals prepared at home or out for date night. Crisp and clean with bright wonderfully balanced acidity, the signature lemon-lime and a touch of apple flavors of Monterey shine through. ” – Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking
Aroma: Ripe tropical fruits of pineapple, mango and passion fruit. Second layer has banana, pear, lemon and toasty oak. Flavors: Ripe red apples, melon and guava. Peach , apricot and toast follow with nuances of butter, honey and spice. The mid-palate is full and has coating texture. Finish: Clean, crisp and a lingering sensation of ripe fruits.
