Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc Estate 2016

Member Review by zufrieden:

Pineapple, soft vanilla oak, licorice spice and perhaps a little delicious apple greet the nose. Yellow color - though short of summertime dandelion intensity - nonetheless indicative of the catch-phrase "Drink Now!" Warm yet sweet in texture, this wine retains a certain astringency that detracts, but otherwise a sound, well-priced Cali wine. Recommended. The 2009 is up next.

  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.

Banana, butternut cream and vanilla, some pineapple and oak aromas. Nice acidity on palate, apples, pineapples, lemon curd/pie, a roundness but not in a bad way, very enjoyable on its own and even better with cheese.

too much oak, it over powers. on the nose, I feel like I am about to have a chardonnay. I like chardonnay but not when I am desiring a crisp sauvignon blanc

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.

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.

Light golden in color and displays expressive fruitaromas of yellow apple and tropical fruit complexed by toasty vanilla and creme brulee. The bouquet is pure and direct with guava, nectarine, golden delicious apple and pears. The palate is rich, full and citrusy with traces of butterscotch and vanilla in the finish. The fruit is reigned in by great acidity and has a persistent malty flavor.
