100 case Chardonnay Gem!

For three generations the Holtermann Family has been one of the premier importers of wines, varying from hard-to-find, leading wineries to very large producers from all over the world.  Their longtime relationships with growers, enolgists, winemakers and vineyard managers provided them with a unique perspective of the wine industry. So the next step was panting their own vineyards, which they did in the remote ridge tops of Annapolis on the Sonoma Coast.  Add winemaker Carroll Kemp to the mix and you’ll wind up with great quality estate-grown wines at a great price point!

This is one of the most pleasant Chardonnays I have tasted in a long time.  The aromas of clementine, citrus and green apple jump out of the glass.  The wine is very well crafted with exquisite fruit and flavor on the mid-palate.  The wine is well-balanced with bright white peaches, lemon zest, quince and a whiff of wet stone minerality.  No new oak was used on this wine so it retains its pristine flavors throughout, and even with malolactic fermentation it retains its bright upfront fruit leading into an elegant finish.  Unfortunately only 100 cases produced!
