The Estate Chardonnay is made with nine different clones on the estate, including our very own Chalk Hill Proprietary Chardonnay Clone 97, to provide aromatic and flavor profile differences, balanced acidity and creamy texture. It is creamy, rich and elegant with complex aromas and flavors of poached pear, lemon cream, toasted marshmallow, baked apple, exotic spice, vanilla and a fresh acidity. This is an age-worthy wine of exceptional quality known for its long, rich and elegant finish.
"Toasty, spicy oak aromas balance the rich, layered fruits and cream in this full-throttle, lavish wine. Poached pears and toasted almonds are laced with light smoke, vanilla and ginger notes that expand on the palate and linger on the finish. " The Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points
