Four Hearts Vineyards
Our family of four makes Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay almost exclusively from Tom Dehlinger’s Vineyard on Laguna Ridge in the Russian River Valley. The vineyard is planted to heirloom clones of Chardonnay and is one of the oldest plantings of Chardonnay in the Russian River – over 40 years old. In some years a small percent of grapes from the Middle Reach region of the Russian River are used in the blend to add a nuanced floral aromatic complexity.
Wines From This Vineyard
"The 2017 Hartford Court Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard has a drop-dead gorgeous floral nose with notes of orange blossoms, honeysuckle and jasmine with a core of preserved lemons, candied ginger, peach cobbler and applesauce. Medium to full-bodied, it has a racy line of freshness and a wonderfully satiny texture, finihsing long and citrusy." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, October 2018
