Wine Thursday: Hanzell Sebella Chardonnay

posted on December 7th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

For a wine of this caliber, this is the deal of the year for Chardonnay. Lifted floral aromas of orange blossom and honey suckle complement the pear, golden delicious apple, white peach, kumquat and pink grapefruit fruit aromas. The flavors on the palate echo the nose, with the addition of lemon zest and a slight tropical note. The entry on the palate is broad and rich, balanced by bright acidity, making this a great wine to serve at your holiday meal! A little history - Industrialist James D. Zellerbach acquired the 200 acre Hanzell estate on the Mayacamas slopes above the town of Sonoma in 1948, and in 1952 he planted 2 acres of Pinot Noir and 4 acres of Chardonnay on the site.
