“The 2017 Chardonnay Heintz is such a textbook example from this site. Apricot, passionfruit, chamomile, spice and buttery notes all give the 2017 striking exoticism to match its oily, viscous personality. Racy and overt to the core, the 2017 is an absolute winner from Radio-Coteau.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Winery Notes: “Located just a stone’s throw across Harrison Grade from the Estate, the Heintz Ranch is a pedigreed site with mature vines in the hills above Occidental. Planted on Goldridge sandy loam soil, the organically grown fruit is nurtured by moderately warm days and cool evenings, resulting in a richness balanced by lively acidity. In addition to being an integral part of the Wingtine Chardonnay, a limited offering of select barrels was chosen for the 2018 Heintz Chardonnay to mirror the spirit and unique character of this storied vineyard.”
