Two Wines of the Month for May! '13 HAKA Chardonnay & (Award Winning) '13 Labyrinth Presqu'ile Vineyard Chardonnay!

May 1, 2017

 

 

 2013 HAKA Chardonnay

 

Sourced from the Santa Maria Valley AVA, our Chardonnay is the perfect chilled wine on a warm afternoon and it pairs perfectly with seafood, Thai, and fruit.

 

Tasting Notes

  • Lovely pale lemon yellow in color with flashes of straw.

  • On the nose you’ll sense ripe white peach, nectarine and cantaloupe developing to crisp baked granny smith apple.

  •  

  • On the palette you’ll taste white peach that continues into yellow peach, grapefruit rind and pineapple that maintains the zesty baked apple signature. Finish is fresh, bright and long.

2013 CHARDONNAY - Presqu'ile Vineyard

 

Winner of the 2017 World Wine Competition - Gold Medal

 

Our Chardonnay grapes are grown in the sandy loam soils at the highest point of the Presqu’ile property, a sustainably certified vineyard.  This wine compliments seafood and white cream dishes.


Tasting Notes

  • Medium lemon to pale straw in color.

  • On the nose you sense white peach and custard apple with hints of brioche and marzipan.

  • On the palate, think OPULENSE! Very stylized with interplay between fruit notes and minerality with subtle oak and fuzzy peach like tannins which go on forever.
