Hawkes Wine & Winery Home Chardonnay 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

|This is anything but a typical California Chardonnay. It has no residual sugar. It does not undergo malolactic fermentation and does not see any new oak. The wine is aged sur lie for about 6 months in old Hungarian barrels. Frequent lees stirring gave it depth and minerality while the acid remains bright and cleansing. This is a Chardonnay meant to be crisp and refreshing and to express the beautiful taste and smell of fresh fruit from a region known for great Chardonnay.|
