Hahn Monterey Chardonnay 2017

Pale in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine starts off with some apple and pear coming through that are quickly overwhelmed by strong peppery notes and firm acidity. Not to the point of bitter, but close. The wine has some slight creamyness to it, and it’s nice and dry. For me, the fruit is being way overshadowed, I think this would improve in a year or two or with aerating, but for now it’s not to my tastes. Lots of chards are way more up my alley … I’d give it an 87-88. If I had more I’d return them 🙁

This winery is still owned and run by the Hahn family, who founded it in 1980. Their 2017 Chardonnay spent five months in oak and offers suggestions of buttered scone, apple and just-ripe banana. There’s a nice balance of fruit with oak and vibrancy with roundness, and the finish is tangy and gently toasty. Savour this through 2023 with barbecued scallops or lobster linguine.
