2007 Chalk Hill Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is light golden in color and displays expressive fruit aromas of yellow apple and tropical fruit complexed by toasty vanilla and crème brulee. The bouquet is pure and direct with guava, nectarine, golden delicious apple and pears. The palate is rich, full and citrusy with traces of butterscotch and vanilla in the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Our estate is unique. The imprint of its terroir is readily apparent in the aromatics, flavors and textures of our wines. For Chardonnay, one of the most noteworthy traits is concentration. Our 2010 is a great example. While displaying a bit more elegance than recent vintages, the wine is still wonderfully intense and powerful with notes of baked apple, hazelnuts, lemon peel, nutmeg, brioche and cream.

A touch viscous but alive and in very fine balance from front to back, it continues to unfold at the finish with long flavors of fruit, minerals, spice and rich oak. There is far more wine here than f...
