Chalk Hill 2021 (USA: CA - Sonoma County) (ID# 1623)

Name Chalk Hill 2021 (ID# 1623)
Varietal Chardonnay
Region USA: CA - Sonoma County
Notes "William Foley grounded his wine empire in Sonoma County with the purchase of the Chalk Hill Estate in 2010. Michael Beaulac, who joined the team in 2021, produced this wine from other Foley family vineyards in Carneros, Chalk Hill and the Sonoma Coast. In it, he captures the chamomile character of chardonnay, showcasing the variety’s gentle fruit rather than its tropical ripeness. Scents of lemon cream and malt add to the wine’s richness." (Wine & Spirits Magazine)

Additional Notes

"Features pear drop, Fuji apple, ripe Bartlett pear and lemon blossom details that are elegant and restrained, but they weave in and out on a light, fresh frame that's quite impressive. Gains a savory element, thanks to a touch of toasted sesame seed." (Wine Spectator)
