Walter Hansel Estate Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
The 2020 Chardonnay The Estate Vineyard opens with pretty aromatics. It's hard to get past the angular contours though. Whether that is attributable to a lack of light, lower ripeness of the lower of the lower amount of oak Hansel opted to use in 2020 is hard to say, but the creaminess typical of these wines is just not there.
