Go Gators! This '12 Hanzell is smooth, yet also a little creamy. It's very polished, very approachable, yet still complex.

Hanzell Vineyards 2012 Chardonnay is poised, 26% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation in new barrels, with the balance matured in stainless steel. The resulting blend strikes a harmonious balance between freshness and oak, with pretty notes of ripe pear, lemon curd, marzipan, and meadow flowers. These notes are echoed on the palate, along a fine silky cord that steadily unfurls, with each layer providing dimension—a sort of weightless, gossamer expanse that closes with baking spice. Sample

Beautifully balanced, creamy, fresh, a bit earthy, a little caramel on the finish #chardonnaydinner #hanzell

A delicious finish to a happy weekend of mild excess. When someone you care about says they don't like Chardonnay, give them this. It's a game changer. This wine demands, and will get, your attention.

No way you find this for $33. Anyway, double decanted, smooth, deep, bright, and brilliant. Ultra delicious. Light and lush at the same time.

Great acidity with incredible fruit profile. Thoughtful amount of French oak that is incredibly integrated.
