Calera's Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the
Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average
elevation of 2,200 feet it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.
The 2004 Mt. Harlan Chardonnay has a bit of everything, alluring aromas of apples,
mandarin essence and vanilla, along with a very creamy unctuous texture. It shows
great balance, with well-integrated acid, just a touch of restrained oak and an
abundance of the minerality typical of Mt. Harlan's limestone soils.
