Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Chalk Hill|
The 2018 Chardonnay Estate has lush scents of baked apples, honeysuckle, honeycomb and hay with notes of quince paste and almonds. The palate is medium-bodied, rounded and slightly buttery with a long, uplifted finish.
An acid-driven beginning evolves into a bigger, richer style on the midpalate of this wine, which is richly opulent in caramel, brioche and an intensity of fig. Rounded and lengthy, it has full-figured flavor.
Baked apple and pear tart flavors are well-spiced, showing lots of custardy accents. Ends with buttery notes and savory hints on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made.
