The current release, this vintage combines bright, juicy fruit with high acidity and moderate tannins. Utterly delicious for drinking now, it also has very good potential to age. Drink now or hold up to 12 years.
There are a mere 3.9 acres of chardonnay vines planted at Hirsch. From this tiny planting, we produce one wine per year, our Hirsch Vineyards Estate Chardonnay. Exceptionally low yields in the 2015 vintage yielded a scant 1.3 tons per acre, which produced only 245 cases. Purity, restraint, acidity and moderate use of new oak define this wine.
