2019 Chalk Hill Chardonnay Estate Sonoma County

2019 Chalk Hill Chardonnay Estate Sonoma County image

Winemaker Notes: Subtle gold tones shine through in this 2019 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Aromas of red apple and ripe pear meld with hints of honeysuckle and orange-peel and a bit of toasty marshmallow. A bright entry gives way to a creamy, rich texture with extended notes of caramel and Macintosh apple, and a long, clean, juicy finish



PRODUCTION NOTES



The 2019 harvest started 1-2 weeks later than usual. A wet winter and spring followed by persistent cool temperatures extended the growing season allowing the grapes to mature gradually. Vintners from around the state are praising the full flavors, fresh acidity and superb balance of this year’s crop. The fruit for this 2019 Chardonnay was harvested in late August through September.



VINEYARD NOTES



Since its founding, Chalk Hill has been producing artisan wines from our Estate vineyards in the hills of northeastern Sonoma County. For four decades we have studied, prodded and coaxed our complex terroir to ensure that our Estate wines deliver vivid aromatics, commanding flavors, great character and regional accuracy. While our 300+ acres of vineyards surrounding the winery will always be the cornerstone of our identity, starting with the 2011 vintage, in addition to our Estate Chardonnay, we started producing our first Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. This 2018 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay comes from extraordinary vineyards throughout Sonoma County consisting primarily of Foley Family estate vineyards. Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay features fruit from some of the best sites in the Russian River Valley, Carneros, and Chalk Hill. The fruit coming from the Chalk Hill AVA provides richness, concentration, viscosity and nuttiness, while the Carneros AVA delivers structure and notes of apple and pear.
