Calera 2015 (USA: CA - Central Coast)

Name Calera 2015
Varietal Chardonnay
Region USA: CA - Central Coast
Notes "The 2015 Chardonnay, which is labeled as the Fortieth Anniversary Vintage, has a ripe, yet classy and balanced style to go with lots of spiced orchard fruits, honeysuckle, and brioche aromas and flavors. It has beautifully sweet fruit, nicely integrated acidity and clean finish, all of which make it a smoking good Chardonnay that will drink nicely for 2-3 years." (Jeb Dunnuck)

Additional Notes

"In a marketplace of pretenders, the Calera Wine Company has always made top-quality Chardonnays in the $20 price range. This wine's performance is not surprising if one looks at the overall excellence of what this producer has made. TASTING NOTES: The 2015 Calera Central Coast Chardonnay satisfies both with its aromas and flavors. This wine exhibits bright core fruit notes, with some dried herbs and fruit. Pair its savory accents with a herbal-accented oven-baked chicken." (Wilfred Wong at
