Walter Hansel Winery Chardonnay The North Slope 2005, 750mL (WA93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Walter Hansel Winery Chardonnay The North Slope

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
Condition: lnl

WA93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The last releases of Chardonnays from the brilliant 2005 vintage for this varietal include the 2005 Chardonnay The North Slope Vineyard. Burgundian notes of hazelnut, brioche, white currants, and hints of peach and crushed rocks are impressive and intense. This is a full-bodied Chardonnay with crisp acidity that should age nicely for 5-6 years. It was aged in French cooperage (mostly Francois Freres and about 49% new oak). A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to build on a brilliant track record of high quality wines offered to consumers at sensationally fair prices. Previously recommended: 2005 Chardonnay Cahill Lane (92), 2005 Chardonnay Estate (91), 2005 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane (91), 2005 Pinot Noir The North Slope (92), 2005 Pinot Noir The South Slope (90). Tel. (707) 525-3614; Fax (707) 528-1310` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
