Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Estate Chardonnay opens with a delicate bouquet of lemon, nectarine, and a warm toastiness. The palate is complex, finessed and balanced with flavors of orange zest, apricot and a hint of vanilla. The age of the vineyards coupled with the limestone terroir delivers exceptional complexity and minerality unique to the Chalone AVA.

Pair this Chardonnay with creamy lobster mac and cheese topped with crunchy, golden breadcrumbs.

WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
One of the best qualities of the Chalone Estate Chardonnay is the wine has never been devoid of personality. The 2015 vintage, drawing from the Chalone AVA, brings ripe citrus, savory spices, and distinct chalkiness onto the palate. The wine's richness makes it a natural pairing with Dungeness crab in a light garlic butter sauce. (Tasted: November 16, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Chalone Vineyard, California
Chalone Vineyard Winery Image
Perched high on the western slopes of the remote Gavilan Mountain Range on Mount Chalone, 1,800 feet above California's Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard represents a singular convergence of terroir and winemaking. Originally planted in 1919, the vineyard's ability to yield benchmark Chardonnay was discovered when Chalone Wine Group co-founder, Dick Graff, made his first vintage there in 1966. The time-honored Burgundian techniques he introduced complement the fruit's character to create the bouquet and flavors that are Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay's hallmarks. Chalone Vineyard's other estate-grown wines are equally distinctive. Chalone also produces Pinot Noir, Syrah, Pinot Blanc and Chenin Blanc.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
