Walter Hansel Chardonnay "The North Slope Vineyard" Russian River Valley 2013
Luscious, rich style of Chardonnay with underpinnings of fresh citrus and mineral smells and flavors. Steve Hansel has made Kistler/Marcassin-esque Chardonnays (at much more reasonable prices) for 20+ years. Enjoy the wine's graham cracker, spiced pear, Golden Delicious apple, lemon custard, and finally a crisp and bit "steely" finish.
