I like this wine because I like russian river/ sonoma chards... typical flavor- mineral, apple, pear, a bit of nutmeg. I am not a fan of huge butter bombs, so if you are a malolactic fanatic, you probably won't like this one.

A very interesting wine. It somehow straddles two styles of chardonnay. On one hand, it's a rich, dense wine with stone fruits and a creamy, smokey finish. On the other hand, it retains a wonderful, bright, crisp, character with nice acidity. Tremendous complexity.

Light and smooth - a really great wine to pair with cheese and fruit in the summertime!

Chalk Hill has perfected American Sauvignon Blanc! Toasty oak blends with crisp, plush, ripe pear, apricot, lemon and cream, with a touch of Sauvignon Gris to enhance depth.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine ReviewRated 95On the one hand dense, deep and very well-extracted, yet on other both bright and balanced, this generously fruited offering is rife with wonderfully well-fit elements of juicy apples, citrus, sweet toast and cream in its rich aromas and follows with full-scaled flavors of real complexity and depth. A touch viscous but alive and in very fine balance from front to back, it continues to unfold at the finish with long flavors of fruit, minerals, spice and rich oak. There is far more wine here than first meets the nose and palate, and its remarkable impressions of layering tied to its perfectly focused Chardonnay fruit move this exceptional effort convincingly to the head of the class.Wine Tasting NotesThe wine boasts intense aromas of Asian pear, green apple, toasted hazelnut and integrated oak. Our signature combination of richness and elegance is evidenced by the creamy, crisp flavors of lemon pie, and exotic spice, all buoyed by the bright, fresh acidity.

A rich, round and well-oaked style of Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of tropical and stone fruits enhance the minerality that shines through from the soil on which it is grown.
