As with all the wines from Hirsch, the purpose of this Chardonnay is to bring you a transparent expression of this unique vineyard site. Through the farming and winemaking, Hirsch strives to bring the acidity and minerality of the site forward, with fruit and oak playing a secondary role. With less than 4 acres of Chardonnay vines, production is very limited, and 100% of the fruit is kept for the Estate.
Estate Chardonnay is available for purchase in increments of 3

Starting with the 2018 Chardonnay Estate, which comes all from the estate Hirsch Vineyard in the Fort Ross-Seaview appellation, it was barrel fermented and aged 10 months in barrel followed by two months in tank. It has a Burgundian bouquet of mulled stone fruits, brioche, green almonds, and chalky minerality. Just hitting 13% natural alcohol, it offers medium-bodied richness, a beautiful, layered texture, bright yet integrated acidity, and a great finish. Straight-up classy, it's going to evolve positively for 2-4 years and keep for over a decade. Maturity: 2022-2034,
