Chalk Hill, Chardonnay 2018, Sonoma Coast, California
Tasting Note: A chardonnay that pairs stonefruit with just the lightest touch of oak reminiscent of white Burgundy.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of quince, bosc pear, nectarine stonefruit, pineapple, blossom and vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a quince-and-clove-infused, medium-plus finish.
The wine has a creamy texture with a fulsome midpalate and complexity throughout the length of the taste.
An enjoyable and versatile chardonnay.
