Walter Hansel 2016 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce Russian River Valley

Produced from the highest elevation and is a product of 3 clones; the Hyde/wente; the Hudson/wente and French Dijon clone 95. These clusters are extremely small and the berries are the size of BB's; offering rich and flavorful wines. My Mom, Alyce, was an exciting Lady with over-the-top energy and appeal. This wine takes after her.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93-95 Points
"Produced from a field blend of Hyde and Hudson Wente selections. This is a big Chardonnay made from tiny berries. Orange marmalade, tangerine oil, honeysuckle and citrus are all present in this beautifully textured, full-bodied Chardonnay that shows little evidence of oak. Should drink well for at least a decade."

Vinous - 93 Points
"The 2016 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce is gorgeous, but is also going to need a few years to come into its own. All of the signatures of this wine - specifically the rich, tropical fruit - are there, but there is also a good bit of freshness to play off the more over elements."
