A chorus of baked apples, lemon curd, nutmeg & vanilla. On the palate, the mouthfeel has a gorgeous texture and creaminess, offering flavours of Meyer lemon, green apple and spice.
Hanna is a CA certified sustainable winery. Our Chardonnay is made from our two mature vineyards in the Russian River Valley. The Slusser Ranch was planted in 1992 on Cortina gravelly loam. Although we have irrigation, it is seldom needed. The Home Ranch was planted in 1990 on Wright loam, which sometimes requires irrigation during heat spells.
The cold fruit was picked into half-ton bins and hauled the short distance to the winery. Once the grapes arrived, we hand-sorted the fruit on our beautiful new fruit conveyor. The Chardonnay was whole cluster pressed while still cold. The juice was cold settled, and then racked to 60-gallon French and Hungarian oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was aged on lees for 7 months.
