The 2017 Chardonnay is pliant and expressive yet very much in the understated style that is such a Hanzell signature. Orange peel tangerine butter hazelnut and light honeyed notes are all laced together in a sublime nuanced Chardonnay that hits all the right notes. The counterpoint of textural depth and energy is compelling. - By Antonio Galloni on January 2020 Jason Jardine is doing fabulous work at Hanzell. Readers who enjoy wines of transparency and nuance will find much to like in this range. The Sebella wines are highly attractive mid-tier offerings while the new de Brye Clone Pinots and Chardonnay showcase the unique character of parcels planted in 1976.
