Hess Select Chardonnay 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay that sees some oak and malolactic fermentation is also from Monterey. This wine displays more tropical fruit, such as pineapple, a touch of peach and citrus blossom. This is a slightly richer wine, and the oak clearly adds some spice, but doesn't really interfere with the emphasis on fruit and forwardness. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.
Wine SpectatorSimple yet pleasant, with a light citrus scent over pear and apple notes. Drink now. 353,000 cases made.
