“Lots of spice, apricot, fig and honeydew melon flavors combine for a full-bodied, mouth-coating experience, with a finish that sails on and on, gaining depth.”-WS

“The 2015 Chardonnay Estate delivers scents of guava, mango, ripe melon and allspice with hints of buttered toast and praline. Full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth with tons of tropical fruit flavors matched by a pleasant oiliness to the texture and refreshing acid line, it finishes long and spicy.”-WA
“Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards and Winery was purchased recently by Bill Foley, proprietor of Foley Family Wines, who will continue the time-honored traditions that Fred Furth began. Founded in 1972 by Fred Furth, the Chalk Hill Estate encompasses 280 acres of carefully positioned vineyards, including the valley floor, hillsides, and ridge tops of a 1300 acre estate. Perpetuating the time-honored traditions of the first land grant pioneers, the Chalk Hill Estate operates as a family farm with the daily tasks of sustainable viticulture flowing seamlessly through the growing season and ultimately to estate bottled wines. Chalk Hill is the only 100% estate winery in the Chalk Hill AVA nestled within the Russian River Valley. The passion for meticulous viticulture has resulted in elegant, world-class wines.“-Winery Notes
Pricey but really good - Some people don’t like fruity Chardonnays. But this is a beautiful example to share with people who are Chardonnay haters. So much complexity, lingering satisfaction.
