K&L Notes

Something fresh and new from historic Hanzell! Hanzell utilizes young estate vine parcels, which will someday be included in their flagship Chardonnay, for their Sebella bottling. 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. Winery tasting notes: "Pretty floral aromas of honeysuckle and lemon blossom give lift to juicy white nectarine, apricot and lime zest. There is a hint of chalk dust and beeswax that give an added dimension. The palate follows the nose with additional flavors of green apple, bosc pear and tangerine."

    Anyone who asks me who makes the best old-world style chardonnay in California will hear me answer Hanzell, and their Sebella is no exception to the outstanding line of wines coming out their doors. Sebella is their young vines program and all the grapes not yet ready for their estate blends go into this, but in the hands of expert winemakers what that means for you is just great value chard. Limestone, and thyme, pushed by phenomenally straight acidity and a lighter but complex body makes this one of the best cheese wines in the building, and a great match for fatty seafood to boot.
