Ben Hogan Chardonnay Tribute Series

The 2009 Chardonnay is a style combining the pure fruit characteristics of the variety with careful winemaking techniques to offer a richly flavored, mouth-filling wine. Hints of ripe tropical fruit balance the subtle oak aromas, leading into a richly layered, complex palate. The wine has extended lees contact and stirring (called batonnage) with a minor percentage of malo-lactic fermentation, all adding to its structure. The winemaker’s Australian heritage is evident with this being a more fruit forward style, ensuring its ability to suit many food types.

The palate reflects the fruit forward style of this wine while offering a number of layers that emerge as the wine breathes. The traditional winemaking develops greater length of flavor and complexity, all supported with refreshing natural acidity.

The 2008 Ben Hogan Chardonnay was hand-crafted using traditional“Burgundian” winemaking techniques. The bouquet is a complex arrayof tropical fruits beautifully integrated with spicy oak influences and thenuances associated with extended lees contact and stirring (known simplyas batonnage). The palate reflects the fruit forward style of this winewhile offering a number of layers that emerge as the wine breathes.
