Chalone Vineyard Estate Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast, Chalone|
There's a core of rocky minerality alongside sharp lime peel and melon rind on the nose of this bottling. The palate is very soil- and rock-driven, which is typical of this rugged appellation, with chalk and gravelly soil flavors giving structure to the dried lime peel flavors.
Distinctive, with a drizzle of wildflower honey to the peach cobbler, baked apple and ripe apricot flavors, backed by fresh, vibrant acidity that keeps all the flavors in focus. Drink now. 2,750 cases made.
