Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Chalk Hill|
The 2016 growing season began with an earlier than average bud break and fruit set followed by moderate temperatures in spring and summer. This allowed for even ripening, and balanced flavors. Our 2016 Estate Chardonnay expresses beguiling aromas of lemon meringue, orange blossom and a hint of toasted almond from the oak influence. Balanced and full with concentrated flavors of Meyer lemon, yellow apple, and crème brûlée follow on the palate. Our Chardonnay is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.
Dark gold in color, the wine's flavors delve into rich, honeyed tones of baked apple, fig and mango, the use of oak substantial in style. There's a clean, short finish after plenty of full-bodied concentration and ripeness.
