Drink it now or cellar for 10-15 years.

Hess Persson Estates is widely renowned as one of the leading family-owned wineries in Napa Valley and the world. Famous for its flagship Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, the company produces two lines of wines, The Hess Collection and Napa Valley's Lions Head Collection, both of which are internationally acclaimed. Leader in sustainable practices, Hess Persson Estates adheres to the philosophy of founder Donald Hess: “Feed the earth; give back what you get". Donald retired in 2017 and today the winery is managed by his daughter Sabrina and her husband Tim Persson.

Chardonnay Lioness is one of the most representative wines of the family's production, symbolizing the bold and enduring nature of founder Donald Hess. The name "Lioness" pays homage to the family crest and refers to Mount Lions Head, a place in South Africa dear to Tim.

The wine exudes delicious notes of tropical fruits and lime blossom, followed by aromas of crème brûlée and vanilla, acacia honey, and light nuances of toasted oak, and notes of nutmeg and almonds. In the mouth, the wine shows brilliant acidity and a surprising concentration of exotic fruit. The finish is long. It is a dynamic and rich wine characterized by complex flavors and aromas and a magnificent balance. Excellent with veal fillet in a creamy sauce, soft cheeses, seafood, fish, and asparagus.
