Taste is Expensive… Price Tag is very Inexpensive!

Walter Hansel has become synonymous with great quality at a great price!  Year after year these wines seem to impress me and my clientele alike.  The first vines were planted in 1978 just a up the block from Kistler!  The actual winery did not start till 1996 when they produced 3 barrels of Pinot Noir and 10 barrels of Chardonnay, and the rest as they say, is history!  Stephen Hansel (Walter’s son) had one of the best winemakers as his tutor (Tom Rochiolli) so it is no surprise that they are still putting out great wines decades later.  Year after this winery has produced amazing “Dollar Cost Average” under priced wines!

The 2016 Walter Hansel “Estate” Chardonnay is pretty, understated and polished, with all of the signatures that make the these wines distinctive.  Medium to full in body and very gracious, with lovely aromatic lift and balanced from start to finish.  The grapes from the estate part that was planted between 1976 and 1988 and is a blend of Dijon Clones 95 & 97 and a Hanzell clone.

Robert Parker 92 Pts:  “The 2016 Chardonnay Estate offers up notes of white peaches, apple pir and green guava with hints of lightly browned toast and allspice.  Medium to full-bodied, it is beautifuly silky in the mouth with great vivacity and a long, pure citrus and stone-fruit layered finish.”
