Hawk Hill Vineyard Chardonnay Reviews

Score: 92 | April 28, 2017 | Wine Advocate

The 2014 Chardonnay Hawk Hill Vineyard has a tropical fruit nose of guava and pineapple with suggestions of cedar, brioche, butterscotch and praline. Full-bodied, rich and seductively creamy in the mouth, it offers mouth-filling tropical and savory flavors with a lively backbone and great length.

From a cold, foggy hillside vineyard in the southwestern corner of the Russian River Valley, this seems a bit burly at first, its vintage-driven warmth and oak spice meeting crunchy minerality. Then, bright acidity pushes its hearty yellow pear and butternut squash flavors toward a salty, marine briskness. It’s intense, substantial, fresh chardonnay; you could decant it now or age it a few years before pouring it with sweet, earthy miso-glazed black cod.

From a hillside spot pummeled by coastal influences, this lovely, light wine opens with a confectionary nose of meringue. Lemony acidity provides a lift of bright, focused tension balanced in concentrated stone fruit and spice with a strong oak backbone.
