Peirson Meyer Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard

Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) From a well-known site favored by the Chardonnay cognoscenti of Northern California, the 2014 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard is a relatively small cuvée of 200 cases aged in the same manner as the other Chardonnays and fermented with indigenous yeasts. This site is at a 900-foot elevation and the vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone on the Goldridge sandy soils of the region. More tangerine, nectarine, lemon oil and citrus are found in this crisp, zesty Chardonnay that also moves toward tropical fruits on the palate. Sexy, full-bodied and a stunner, drink it over the next 5-7 years. -Robert Parker
