Wine Review: The bouquet of this wine is pleasant and light with a touch of oak. On the palate, this wine is smooth and creamy and has a distinctive vanilla flavor. The panel thought it would also be very food friendly. The finish was short but pleasant. We enjoyed it and recommend it. - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2004 Hess Collection Chardonnay exhibits its signature of proprietary flavors and crisp acidity that originate from the vineyard plantings of a unique blend of seven rootstocks and nine hand selected clones of chardonnay. This spice rack of chardonnay shows in the aromas of guava, pineapple and orange blossom. Rich and lush, a palate of pear and vanilla flavors is balanced with nice acidity that evolves through the finish.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Chardonnay.
