Hangtime Chardonnay

California

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Hangtime Chardonnay is straw gold in color with aromas of sweet Fuji apple, toasted marshmallow, baked pear and freshly popped kettle corn. The wines vibrant acidity and subtle creaminess provide for a pleasant and lasting finish.

Hangtime Chardonnay pairs well with a variety of seafood including baked salmon and sautéed shrimp with butter and lemon. Creamy pasta dishes, roasted chicken, and mild and soft cheeses also make for delightful pairings.

Our winemaker ensures that the Hangtime wines embody the essence of Hangtime. Our winemaking philosophy focuses on developing balance and harmony in our wines, as we do in our lives. For our Chardonnay, the focus was on utilizing grapes that were allowed to ripen slowly in order to ensure the correct balance of fruit and acidity. Once the grapes had reached maturity and the correct length of hangtime, they were picked and fermented.

100% Chardonnay 13.5% ABV

We source Chardonnay grapes from cool vineyard locations throughout California that offer a naturally drawn out hangtime, for slow, even ripening and bright, balanced acidity.

Grown under the California sun, our grapes produce wines of fruit-forward flavors and acidity that pair perfectly with freshly prepared cuisines of all styles.

Tasting Notes

Delicious pineapple and lychee fruit on the nose, are followed by sweet apple flavors on the palate that are complemented by good acidity and a nice clean finish. We enhance the character of these grapes by fermenting the wine in oak barrels, with a simultaneous malolactic fermentation, to add a layer of creaminess and beautiful notes of spice and toast. Pair with Salmon, Crab cakes, and a great fish story... or two.

In the case of the 2013 vintage Tony focused on utilizing grapes that were allowed to ripen slowly in order to ensure the correct balance of fruit and acidity. Once the grapes had reached maturity and the correct length of hangtime they were picked and fermented.
