Winemaker Notes

Our 2009 Mt Harlan Chardonnay entices with an alluring mineral, peach gelato bouquet and notes of gooseberry, honeysuckle, Bosc pear and golden apple. It is a statuesque wine; elegant, savory and velvety, with its gentle, creamy texture yet pronounced structure, hinting towards this vineyards proven, astounding aging potential, although admittedly it is wonderful to drink young as well.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The brilliant 2009 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan, the finest Chardonnay Calera has made in many years, was produced from 1.65 tons of fruit per acre, and spent 10 months in French oak barrels. A chalky component (from the limestone soils of this appellation) is intermixed with quince, white currant, nectarine, orange blossom, and lemon butter notes in an incredibly complex, crystalline style. Full-bodied with stunning concentration, length, and texture, this fabulous Chardonnay could easily pass for a grand cru white Burgundy in a blind tasting. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.

Calera, California
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.
