2013 Hirsch Vineyards Estate Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

13.5% alc., 720 cases, $60. This wine is produced from 3.9 acres of Chardonnay vines planted at Hirsch Vineyard. · Moderately light golden yellow color in the glass. The wine aims to please upon opening, offering hi-tone scents of lemon curd, grilled pineapple and poached pear. The fruit really speaks in this harmonious wine, with delicious flavors of lemon, pear and apple accented with a saline note. Slightly creamy on the palate, with juicy acidity and beautiful integration of oak. Very gracious and classy. Score: 93. Reviewed November 5, 2015
