I'mnot a big Chardonnay fan but I like this one. It is crisp with the apple and nectarine flavors. It's brightness and acidity reminds me of Sauvignon Blanc.

We're certain that you'll enjoy this Chardonnay. Its fresh appeal, touch of vanilla oak and bright apple and pear fruit character will please many palates. Chalone's wines are highly acclaimed and very well-made. This white is exemplary of their winemaking standards and offers a glance into their portfolio.

Monterey, CaliforniaChalone Chardonnay from Monterey is a white wine gem for everyday enjoyment. Chalone Vineyard is one of the most prestigious wineries in California and among the first to recognize the great potential of Chardonnay from Monterey County. With moderate winters and a maritime-influenced climate, Monterey has one of the coolest, most consistent growing seasons in the state, ideal for this thin-skinned varietal. Chalone Chardonnay is 100% Monterey Chardonnay. Bright and crisp with medium body, it offers a nose of baked pear, Braeburn apple and sweet tangerine accented by floral notes and nutmeg. The palate adds juicy stone fruit and guava, developing creaminess through the middle. The wine is well balanced, complemented by just enough oak to lend structure and complexity. 60 percent of the wine was aged for six months in a combination of French, American and European oak.Enjoy Chalone Chardonnay over the next 3-4 years. It is pleasant for sipping as well as a perfect complement to sauted scallops, stuffed chicken breast and pasta.


Winemaker's Notes:

In our Chardonnay, bright, fruit-focused flavors keep cadence with sweet essence of oak. Baked pear, Braeburn apple and sweet tangerine are accented by wafts of floral and nutmeg. Well-balanced, the fruit remains bright and crisp, complemented by just enough oak to lend structure and complexity. This wine’s versatility makes it pleasant for sipping as well as a perfect complement to sautéed scallops or stuffed chicken breast.
