94 POINTSAntonio Galloni’s Vinous
“. . . the 2014 Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard, is fabulous. Ripe apricot, peach, mint and wild flowers open up first, but it is the wine’s textural richness and oiliness - both signatures of Heintz - that stand out most. The 2014 is unctuous, rich and buttery, but also wonderfully restrained.”

93 POINTSRobert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
“Far more intriguing, sleek and concentrated, is the 2014 Charles Heintz Vineyard from the cool, windy Sonoma Coast. Also 100% barrel-fermented with indigenous yeast, it offers loads of unbuttered popcorn, white peach, pineapple, poached pear, lemon, caramelized citrus and a touch of marmalade in a medium to full-bodied, wonderfully vibrant, energized style with gorgeous fruit and length.”

Winemaker’s Notes - Philippe Melka
“The 2014 vintage of our prized Sonoma Coast Chardonnay invites inspection with a beguiling nose of white flowers, star jasmine, and exotic tropical fruit. On the palate, notes of lemon zest and pineapple coyly announce themselves, while the wine’s subtle oak framing, layering and pleasing acidity combine to present a picture that is at once refined and elegant, while also remarkably light on its feet.”
