Chalone Chardonnay Limited Release 2010

It is the expression of terroir and minerality that create immutable, long-lived aromas and flavors. The minerality will linger, preserving the tension and complexity of the wine long after the fruit is gone.

The spare, well-drained ground, limited rainfall and low crop levels attracted Dick Graff, who wanted to make top-flight Burgundian-styled Chardonnay. Graff made his first vintage under the Chalone Vineyard label in 1966, producing what became a benchmark for California Chardonnay. Read less
