2011 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Hop to it!
Today’s lovely 2011 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is another delicious wine from HKG Wines. They continually WOW us with their offerings (first with their Pinot and now with today’s fantastic Chardonnay).
Beside the crisp flavors and bold aromatics, today’s wine really only needs one word to describe it: luxurious. We were certain that we were tasting a much higher priced wine, and we were over-the-moon thrilled when we found out we could offer today’s delicious white wine at only $21.99.
Be sure to stock up on today’s Chardonnay - wines that taste this good, at this price point, don’t come around too often!
Check out this video from winemaker Chuck Mansfield discussing his 2011 Russian River Chardonnay:
Pale golden hued through and through, like a subtle ray of spring sunshine.
Very fresh and lively aromas of green apple, Meyer lemon, and pineapple leap from the glass, with hints of lime flower, honeycomb, slightly toasted oak, white flower petal, and brioche.
A heady blend of fresh and exotic fruits, with pineapple, Anjou pear, and kiwi mingling with buttery lemon brioche, vanilla bean, sweet lemongrass, honeydew melon, and a touch of oak.
Crisp, clean, and incredibly elegant, today’s wine tasted like a MUCH higher priced Chardonnay. Absolutely delicious.
