Hanzell utilizes young estate vine parcels for their Sebella bottling which will someday be included in their flagship Chardonnay. The style of this bottling celebrates the purity and focus of youthful fruit. The precise profile is allowed to shine by virtue of its vinification and barrel-aging in French oak, but without new wood or malolactic fermentation. As a second wine, Sebella is far from simple and its virtue shows most clearly on the persistence of finish which out-classes much more fleshy and obvious Chardonnay bottlings on the market. Winemaker's notes: "Lifted floral aromas of orange blossom and honeysuckle 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, wet graphite and a slight tropical note. The entry on the palate is broad and rich, balanced by bright acidity."

It was only a few months ago that I had my first sip of Hanzell Chardonnay and it was outstanding! Not too long after I decided to visit their winery and was able to taste their Sabella wines which are sourced from younger vines on the estate. I was blown away again. It is an excellent and expressive crisp-style chardonnay. Partial use of neutral oak and stainless gives a wonderful medium bodied texture while leaving the wine vibrant and fresh with note of pink and yellow citrus. A friendly price point at under $25, you won't be disappointed in the quality from one the oldest estate wineries in Sonoma County.
