Winemaker Notes

Aromas of fresh white peach, lychee, and honeysuckle linger on the nose of this Central Coast Viognier. This dynamic, creamy Viognier possesses flavors of tart Granny Smith apple, orange blossom, and tropical fruit dawdling into a viscous finish.

COMMENTARY: Reconciling the New and Old Worlds in talking about Viognier can be difficult. While the great Condrieu wines are often in a class by themselves and the Pays d'Oc examples are pretty low-keyed, and oft times average, the 2016 Calera Central Coast Viognier seems to fit right in-between those two vastly different categories. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits a pleasingly fragrant aroma, with a hint of attractive core fruits. Its palate presence is rich and weighty as it delivers excellent tactile pleasures. Pair its richness with moderately spicy Szechwan dishes. (Tasted: February 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Calera Winery Video

In 1975, legendary vintner and American wine pioneer Josh Jensen founded Calera (Spanish for “lime kiln”) high in the remote Gavilan Mountains of California’s windswept Central Coast. There, in Mt. Harlan’s low-yielding, limestone-rich soils and cool, arid climate, he began planting what would ultimately become six small estate vineyards. Today, these vineyards are recognized as some of the New World’s most revered Pinot Noir sites.

Calera is a vision, and Calera’s wines truly express the sense of place. Rather than follow the recommended path, Josh Jensen became a pioneer in American Pinot Noir. Taking his cue from the great domaines of Burgundy, which have grown grapes in limestone soil for centuries, he set out in search of the perfect spot in California to create wines unique to the world but in the style of the greatest wines of France. Site selection was vital as he ventured off the grid to plant on the site of an old limekiln in the Gavilan Mountains of California's Central Coast.

Under the stewardship of Winemaker Mike Waller, each vineyard is renowned for producing singular wines of uncommon purity, elegance and aging potential. In addition to its beloved single-vineyard wines, Calera partners with some of the top vineyards on California’s majestic Central Coast to make Calera’s beautiful Central Coast wines, including a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
