Winemaker's Notes

#29 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Our 2007 Estate Chardonnay is a true expression of Chalone's unique terroir capturing the very essence of our vineyard with toasty aromas of hazelnut, stone fruit, white pear and a unique minerality. On the palate, there is a bright acidity that mingles with flavors of fleshy pear, apricot, a bit of apple and is marked by Chalone's distinctive minerality which comes from our vineyard's unique limestone and decomposed granite soils.

Critical Acclaim

"Exhibits a complex mix of subtle pear and mineral with pleasant earthy notes and floral scents. Tight and full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2012. "
