Product category: California

Hahn Pinot Noir

The grapes for this charming, fruit-forward wine grow primarily in the cool-climate Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County. This region sits on a gravelly alluvial plain at the foot of the Santa Lucia mountains. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and ideal development of vibrant flavors. After harvest, we age this wine in French oak (40% new, 60% neutral).

This Pinot Noir’s charismatic aromas include red cherry, ripe strawberry, cola and spice. Flavors of plum and black cherry are completed by a soft mouthfeel. Supple tannins and a bit of acidity end in a beautifully balanced and clean finish.

Hahn Chardonnay

The Chardonnay grape favors cooler climates. Most of the fruit for this wine grows in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County where cool winds from Monterey Bay bathe the vineyards. This climatic condition causes fruit to ripen slowly, resulting in balanced, vibrant flavors, while the region’s rocky-loam soils help juxtapose ripeness with acidity. Our own vineyards in Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco AVAs are a significant source of fruit for this Chardonnay.

This rounded and supple Chardonnay delights with aromas of pineapple, mango, pear and vanilla that gracefully give way to flavors of green banana, baked apples and toffee. Its ample mouthfeel reveals a delicate acidity beautifully balanced with a lingering note of sweet butter on the creamy finish. We age this 100% Chardonnay in 40% new French oak, with the balance in neutral oak.

Hahn Pinot Gris

In Monterey County where the fruit for this wine grows, cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean slow down ripening and allow the fruit to develop vibrant flavors and brisk acidity. Our own vineyards in Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco AVAs are a significant source of fruit for this Pinot Gris.

Once harvest is complete, we ferment the grapes in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. This cool and neutral method of fermentation preserves delicate floral and stone fruit aromas and contributes to a bright finish. Enjoy notes of peach, tart pear and banana, along with a silky mouthfeel and crisp acidity. Flavors of Meyer lemon and green apple complement the finish.

About us

Company details

We know that other people have said this but we also know that it’s true: wines are made in the vineyard. We’re the proud stewards of six estate vineyards in Monterey County, four of which are located in the world-class growing region of the Santa Lucia Highlands and two others in the esteemed Arroyo Seco appellation. At Hahn, we have been dedicated for 35 years now to crafting unique wines that reflect these superior vineyards along with other auspicious plantings.

From our work in the vineyards to assure vine balance all the way through to our gentle winemaking approach, Hahn wines benefit from artisanal techniques that include open-top fermentation of Pinot Noir and patient aging in our temperature-controlled cellar.

In the vineyard, we harvest at peak ripeness, then sort and de-stem the fruit before applying a gentle press and cold soak. To extract rich colors, aromas and flavors, we emphasize extended maceration of the grapes. Alongside these boutique techniques we also employ cutting-edge technology, like our fermenters which continuously regulate temperature to ensure control and quality.

To contribute additional layers of subtlety and depth, we use the finest French oak coopers in our barrel-aging regime. Our Chardonnay barrels are hand-stirred every two weeks throughout the aging process to promote additional complexity to the finished wine.

In the end, we find that even with the variations that naturally occur vintage to vintage, each of our wines bears a mark of distinction that gives testament to its one-of-a-kind origins.
