2013 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Chardonnay •Charles Heintz Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
Today’s special wine is a must-have, dear Operative! This delightful Chardonnay has all the makings of greatness; Heintz Vineyard + former Williams Selyem winemaker Dan Fitzgerald + Brack Mountain = greatness in the glass. We bought every case we could but hurry, quantity is limited.
We’ve been featuring wines from Heintz Vineyard for the last 7 years or so. Our head spy, Agent Red, adores their delicious wines and when he learned that his pals at Brack Mountain produced a Heintz vineyard designate under their Matias label, he rushed to taste it. The moment he did, he purchased every last case that was available.
The fact that this wine was made by Dan Fitzgerald, for the kings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Williams Selyem, was the icing on this fresh, fruity, elegant wine.
This wine is bright and fresh with aromas of Meyer lemon, lemon curd, lime blossom, yellow grapefruit, fresh pineapple, subtle vanilla and a hint of flinty mineral. It is also incredibly delicious, with bright flavors of Meyer lemon, lime zest, orange blossom, pineapple, pink grapefruit, acacia flower, lemon curd, vanilla, subtle toasty oak, and a hint of minerality.
Today only, enjoy 25% off on this really special, really delicious Chardonnay. Quantity is limited, so please hurry.
Brilliant pale golden yellow, with perfect clarity. Tall, skinny, tight-spaced legs take a long time to emerge - before swiftly moving down the glass wall.

Long and fresh, with fruit flavors that tail off very gradually.
Enjoy this festive wine with your favorite holiday meals. Soft cheeses and charcuterie would be great, as would whatever fish and fowl you care to enjoy this lovely wine with.
