Chalk Hill, Estate Chardonnay 2019, Chalk Hill, California

Tasting Note: Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay continues to impress with its 2019 vintage that presents the grape in an elegant, restrained style with just the slightest hint of well-integrated oak.

Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, bosc pear and quince with hints of vanilla spice, lychee and lemon-citrus zest.

On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.

The wine is filled with complexity and nuance.

A chardonnay to recover from the laborious amount of unoaked chardonnay on the market.

Bottle Note: Courtney Foley, Winemaker. Chalk Hill is located in the Chalk Hill appellation of the Russian River Valley. This wine is hand-crafted from grapes grown exclusively on the estate. Each variety is matched to specific sites and mesoclimates; gentle winemaking practices capture the diversity of each vineyard block, resulting in wines of distinction and elegance. This wine was bottled unfiltered to preserve its unique and natural character.
