Tasting Notes
Hahn SLH Chardonnay greets the nose with citrus, stone fruit and hints of banana and vanilla.  A viscous mouthfeel with welcoming acidity and showcases stone fruits, citrus, and hints of apple and spices.

Vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands experience a long and dry growing season that results in wines with remarkable depth, complexity and ripe fruit flavors. Hahn SLH vineyards – Lone Oak, Smith, Doctor’s, and Hook – are planted on a narrow bench at elevations ranging from 200 to 1,200 feet above sea level. Here, plentiful sun and well-drained soils aid concentration and flavor development.

A dry and sunny year for Santa Lucia Highlands , however below average temperatures remained over the region through the end of May and into June.  Gusty, northwesterly jet streams caused upwelling of very cold water into the Monterey Bay.    This wind and cold water impacted the Salinas Valley day and nighttime temperatures.  

After being carefully picked and precisely sorted for quality, the grapes were pressed off their skins and fermented entirely in small French oak barrels. We then hand-stirred the wine on its lees every three weeks for the 12 months this Chardonnay aged in barrel. Our winemaker, Paul Clifton, selected the barrels he felt best expressed the aromas, flavors and texture of the Santa Lucia Highlands
