2012 Hagan Chardonnay

Chardonnay
ELEV. 850 FT. / PACIFIC OCEAN 4.6 MI.
Sonoma Coast

Vineyard

The inaugural release of the 2012 Hagan Vineyard Chardonnay was harvested from a one and a half acre section planted to 100% Old Wente clone vines. This Chardonnay from the same renowned Taylor Lane ridgetop as its namesake Pinot Noir sister offers a refined profile of floral aromas, citrus and spiced pear fruit balanced with vibrant acidity. Production is quite limited for our newest estate wine, so we encourage our members to access their allocation while quantities are still available.

Taste

Lemon zest, honeysuckle, Asian pear

Philosophy

Red Car is focused on growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah in a network of cold-climate vineyards on the edge of the Pacific in the West Sonoma Coast. We are hands-on farmers, part of a small cadre of wineries in our region who are fortunate to grow a large majority of our own fruit. For several years now we have worked hard to go beyond sustainability and have integrated the concepts and principles of organic, biodynamic and permaculture systems into our farming as we search for nature’s ideal pathways. Our wines are made in small lots utilizing minimalist intervention techniques like native yeast fermentation, gravity flow, and natural acid.
