Acidic attack with lots of oak on the nose. There's a touch of fruit hidden behind, but its way too oaky. A bitter and very spicy oaky finish (short though).

Harvested very ripe (Oct-Nov 2006) and shows hints of ripe tree fruit and even tropical fruit, but the most salient style is that luxurious, unctuous buttery style with spice, toffee and creamy oaky nuts, quite viscous and delicious

Showing more tension and energy, the 2012 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan is an incredible effort that exudes ripe apple, white peach, white flowers and mint aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled, the acidity is beautifully integrated, and the wine builds in richness and depth with time in the glass. Coming from limestone soils, 100% barrel-fermented and aged 10 months in 30% new French oak, it’s a brilliant Chardonnay to drink over the coming 4–5 years.

Calera's entry-level Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards in the Central Coast, and represents an excellent value for the region. Deep fruit character and layered complexity not often found at this price point, very impressive.

Calera produces organically grown Chardonnay grapes from the Mt. Harlan Vineyard. This wine is impressive for it's deft balance between bright fruit, crisp acid, and intriguing minerality.

The 2011 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan bursts from the glass with expressive apricots, peaches, crushed rocks, French oak and spices. Rich yet weightless, the 2011 is striking from the very first taste. Once again, Calera’s Mt. Harlan Chardonnay is world-class. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2018.

Pale yellow in the glass with high-toned, tropical notes on the nose, along with spicy Asian pear. The palate is floral and expressive with hazelnut skin nuances and a waxy, textured weight. Up front and youthful with a warm, lasting finish. Lay down... Devon Magee. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2011 Calera Chardonnay Mt Harlan 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright honeysuckle, sandalwood, honeydew melon and Asian pear are typical aromas for this classic Chardonnay from high elevation, limestone laden Mt Harlan vineyard inland from the chilly Monterey Bay. Restrained flavors of apricots, Meyer lemon chiffon, vanilla crème caramel, bosc pear and a tiny hint of wild fennel wrap around the soft, round elegant core with a whisper of sweet French oak and butterscotch. This wine will develop amazing complexity for years to come. 834 cases produced.
