96 and 97 Point Chardonnays from Wine and Cheese Place favorite -- Hartford Court.

2017 Hartford Court Four Hearts Chardonnay...$43.99
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, finishing long and citrusy.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate

2016 Hartford Court Chardonnay Jennifer's Vineyard...$63.99
The 2016 Hartford Court Chardonnay Jennifer’s Vineyard displays intense notes of grapefruit, green guava, mango and pineapple with nuances of talc, oyster shells and fresh ginger. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and super intense with tightly wound layers of citrus and tropical fruits and bags of mineral notions on the epically long finish. This needs time but should emerge from the cellar gloriously in 2-3 years!
Rated 97+/100 The Wine Advocate
