Aged for 10 months in new French oak barrels, this vintage of Calera balances beautifully on a fine line, quite elegantly. Layered and nuanced with green mango and Key lime, Gala apple, lemon tea cake, and hints of cream and vanilla. A driving acidity helps keep the flavors in line with one another. A smart use of oak is really the strength of this wine; it adds body and really helps keep everything in check. Long, graceful, lingering finish.

Calera’s 2012 Chardonnay Central Coast offers classic ripe apple and orchard fruits, creme and brioche in a medium-bodied, vibrant and clean style. Aged in 10% new French oak for 10 months, buy this beauty by the case and drink it over the coming couple of years.
