Chardonnay ‘Dinner Vineyard’, Paul Hobbs
Paul Hobbs has sourced from the small, revered hillside site since the winery’s founding in 1991. Plentiful daytime sun exposure is balanced with cooling morning and evening fog coming from the top of San Pablo Bay to allow fruit to develop rich flavors while retaining bright acidity.
Press & Reviews
The 2017 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard charges forth with notes of spiced apples, pear tart and brioche with touches of butterscotch, lime blossoms and coriander seed plus a waft of mandarin peel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is still very tightly wound, with a compelling backbone of freshness cutting through the intense citrus and savory layers, finishing long and mineral laced. 597 cases produced, to be released in March 2019.
