2014 Walter Hansel Winery Chardonnay Cuvée Alyce, USA, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley - Wine Review
This has really improved in the last 6 months. This has some oak on it which may be a question for some, but if you like this style, it is impressive. Deep golden in color. The nose has vanilla and lemon cream. Slight fesh lumber. On the palate, there is a lovely oily texture. Very lemony with a bit of sawdust as well as vanilla. Very nice acidity. Worked just find with some cheeses. Still on the young side and plenty of fruit to hold up as the oak integrates. It is delicious right now.
