The Story: Perched on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Fort Ross,Hirsch Vineyards is the birth ground of great pinot noir and Chardonnay on the extreme Sonoma Coast. David Hirsch founded the vineyard in 1980 to grow fruit and make site-specific wine. From the start all efforts have been on the growing of fruit that makes wines with profound characteristic of the site vintage after vintage.  The (4 acre) Chardonnay vineyard was planted in 1994 with clippings from J. Rochiolli.  Various great wineries (Kistler, Littorai, etc)  have been purchasing this amazing fruit for years. The first Hirsch “Estate” Chardonnay dates back to 2006.

 

The Wine: As with all the wines from Hirsch, the purpose of their Chardonnay is to bring you a profound expression of this unique vineyard site. With less than 4 acres of Chardonnay vines, production is very limited, and 100% of the fruit is now kept for the estate. The ideal growing conditions in 2014 produced gorgeous, aromatic wines. The 2014 Chardonnay is characterized by great acidity and depth of fruit. It is utterly delicious now and may also be cellared for some years.  Alcohol 13.3%

Galloni 94 Points: “The 2014 Chardonnay Estate is gorgeous. Yellow orchard fruit, chamomile, lightly honeyed notes, along with a distinctive phenolic feel, are among the signatures. Apricot, white orchard fruit and a host of soil-inflected notes continue to flesh out over time. Classy, understated and polished to the core, the Hirsch Chardonnay is terrific.”
