Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce is a total knock-out. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth and textural elegance to burn. Citrus confit, white flowers, chamomile and light tropical notes lend an exotic flair to this striking, beautifully delineated Chardonnay from Hansel.
Throughout the 1980’s the entire family would harvest the half acre of grapes and my father and I would make the wine; filling two barrels, which equaled 50 cases of wine.
All chardonnay is whole cluster pressed into French oak (a combination of Francois Freres and Sequin Moreau) with between 25-30 new and the remainder 1-2-3 years old. The barrels are stirred weekly for 1-2 months. The wine is aged 10 months in barrel.
Pairs well with pork, vegetarian, and poultry dishes
