  Chalk Hill Estate Winery has a very unique terroir and climate, and when Fred Furth, founder of the winery, flew over the land in 1972, he knew that it had the potential to be a top-class vineyard. Chalk Hill Estate Winery is located in the Chalk Hill AVA, part of Sonoma County, and it is the only estate winery located within that AVA. The land itself borders the cooler Russian River Valley and the warmer Alexander Valley, meaning that the 1,400 acre vineyard has a wide range of soil types and a microclimate that is unique to the region. Lisa Bishop Forbes, Chalk Hill’s winemaker, has managed to take the varied grapes that the region produces and turn them into extremely successful wines, especially Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and the winery’s Estate Red.

This offers an expansive mix of ripe fig, apricot, mango and tropical fruit, holding a rich posture on the long, layered finish. Drink now through 2020.

The nose offers peach, mango, Butterscotch Melon and lemon. The flavors add mango, passion fruit, and Musque to the mix. While this Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and powerful, it also possesses the ample structure and acidity to age.

Exceptionally ripe, this has notes of tropical fruits, apricots and pears, with a glorious coating of sweet, smoky, buttered toast from the oak. It’s pretty obvious in its appeal, and it will be enjoyed by many for its vast richness.

Equal parts delicious and intriguing with spicy smoky and floral notes. Meyer lemon apricot and nectarine flavors end with a juicy spicy finish with touches of spice box and crushed rock. Drink now. - MW Wine Spectator.

The aromas and flavors feature white peach, golden delicious apples, vanilla and creme brulee. The palate is rich and concentrated with spice and toasted oak while fine natural acidity keeps the wine in balance.
