    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Hess Collection Su'skol Napa Valley Chardonnay displays Asian pear and honeysuckle aromas with Clementine tangerine on the palate. There is a nice weight to the mid-palate. It manages to capture the fruit in an impressive choreography of pleasing acidity and subtle oak by aging it for nine months in 20% new French oak barrels.

    Fresh citrus flavors in this wine pair well with poached or grilled seafood, shrimp or crab with spicy aioli, baby greens tossed in citrus honey vinaigrette, avocados, fruit salsa, shaved fennel, tangerines and triple cream cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of flowers, honeysuckle, fig and spice are rich and complex, elegant and balanced, gaining depth and nuance on the finish, where the minerality shines through. Drink now through 2018.
