Chalone Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Monterey County 2010

Member Review by qmckenna:

I don't know if this is the same wine but.... great stuff, starting to show its age in a good way, deep gold color, toasty oak, caramel and vanilla on the nose, medium body, luscious texture, medium long finish with a slight overabundance of new oak.

Perched in the remote Gavilan Mountain Range, 1,800 feet above California's Salinas Valley, this rugged vineyard sits at the base of an extinct volcano bordering the Pinnacles National Monument. Chalone Vineyard is one of the few wineries in the U.S. growing grapes in limestone-based soils, the same as in Burgundy. 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

WS 88 Pts - Tasting Notes - The cool climate and morning fog of this northern Monterey location create a bright, mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose aromas of lemongrass and mouthwatering tropical fruits, guava and passion fruit, mingle with a hint of lemon zest and grapefruit. Flavors of citrus, melon and spice delight the palette and senses.
