Limited. 92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Hansel's 2018 Chardonnay The Estate Vineyard is absolutely gorgeous. In 2018, The Estate has an extra kick of freshness and energy that marries well with the Russian River exuberance that is so typical of these wines. The Estate is the most vibrant and floral of these Chardonnays. It is also a fabulous value in today's world." Robert Parker: "...The Hansel wines capture the essence of the Russian River in their exuberant, forward personalities. In my view, the Chardonnays are reference points for what Wente clone Chardonnay is all about. Quality is high across the board and pricing remains incredibly consumer friendly throughout the range, making these some of the most delicious and compelling Sonoma wines readers will come across."

Medium lemon with aromas of nice ripe stone and tropical fruits with floral spice notes. Sourced from 40+ year-old vines, on the palate flavors of apple, peach and pineapple fruit flavors with a nice dollop of citrus and toasty oak. Well balanced, fresh long finish ending with creamy mineral character. Nice value.
