K&L Notes

The Hahn label is not unfamiliar to K&L as we've had a string of amazing interest in their Pinot Noir over the last few years; the 2012 vintage did extremely well in our wine club and had people coming back for more. The 2013 was one of the top selling Pinot Noirs of 2015, and a wild customer favorite, for us. The 2014 went from one of the top Pinots of the year to flat out one of the top wines of the year, period! So this year we decided to dive deeper into the brand and we were tremendously excited about what we found. Not only is their Pinot Noir fantastic again but so are a whole set of wines, the forerunner being the winery's Chardonnay counterpart which is a stunning $20 effort in the world of Domestic Chardonnay.

    Cornmeal, toasted Challah bread, nectarine and minerality fill the clean and linear nose on this fully weighted wine. Fleshy, rich and with a pleasing light creaminess this is a bold enough Chardonnay to please the “bigger is better” fans but still has so much fruit complexity and a wealth of stone and spice components that people that enjoy more “traditional” Chardonnays should take note. Passion fruit, more buttered toast, orange marmalade and a pleasing flowery quality all intermingle on the full and well formed palate. This is something that we really think is tremendous for the value and should make a lot of friends with its generously friendly style over the summer and well into the fall.

    Looking for a juicy, tropical fruit-laden, oaky California Chardonnay without the typical high price tag? This 2015 Hahn Chardonnay fits the bill! Ripe pear, mango and citrus fruits with a nice complement of oak lend great texture to this tasty, easy-drinking Chardonnay for just $20.

    The Hahn SLH Pinot Noir is a big customer favorite and this Chardonnay is another fantastic value. Lush and aromatic, this Chardonnay shows fresh lemon zest, orange blossom and vanilla with a rich, round texture and balanced acidity. At the $20 mark, this is an easy going white that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    The 2015 Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay is perfect for anyone who loves a big, creamy style, but with subtlety and delicacy. The Hahn estate is family owned and run, in a cool climate region in Monterey County, and the Chardonnay is crafted in a way that reflects the family's effort and care. The wine is hand-stirred on the lees and crafted from fruit grown on the elevated and terraced Hahn estate vineyards, and the result is a wine that is perfectly balanced in fruit, body and acidity. Aromas of cream, golden delicious apple, ripe mango and kumquat entice, and a rich, full bodied and fruit-driven palate with hints of candied lemon peel leave a delightful impression.
