One of the highest scoring wines from the estate, this brisk and racy Chardonnay could fool many Burgundy aficionados in a blind tasting as to its origins. The exotic guava, mango and pineapple fruits are woven within a brisk core of grapefruit that unfolds and unwinds on the palate for a long, long time. The minerals and stone aromas only lead to fooling many of its true source on the Sonoma Coast. Add this to the top of your list of wine purchases today!

Wine Advocate

The 2016 Hartford Court Chardonnay Jennifer’s Vineyard displays intense notes of grapefruit, green guava, mango and pineapple with nuances of talc, oyster shells and fresh ginger. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and super intense with tightly wound layers of citrus and tropical fruits and bags of mineral notions on the epically long finish. This needs time but should emerge from the cellar gloriously in 2-3 years!
