Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016 (750ml)

Product Description

The 2016 ripening season was cooler on average than the previous three, with lower daytime highs and colder nights. Although harvest started a week earlier than average the fruit quality was high given the even growing season. No significant heat spikes during ripening took place, yet fruit came in all at once over a two to three-week period.
