The Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay captures the vibrant, complex and classic character of the Chalk Hill estate-grown grapes. Chardonnay is a winemaker’s grape, molded into its most interesting self by native yeast fermentation and aging in carefully chosen French oak barrels and frequent lees stirring. It is a labor-intensive wine, but the rewards are most certainly worth the hard work and attention.
The Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay expresses aromas of lemon, orange blossom and a hint of vanilla bean from the oak influence. Balanced, complex and full flavors of lemon oil, orange zest, and crème brûlée follow on the palate. This wine is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.
