Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay from Calera is Excellent. It opens with a ripe pineapple and mango bouquet with hints of hazelnut, pastry dough, and vanilla. (bee’s wax) On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a rich oak, pineapple, and pear blend with notes of pie crust. We also detected hints of mango and lemon. The finish is dry, and its rich flavors linger and last for a while. The Panel would drink this impressive Chard on its own or pair it with lobster bisque. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Grown high on the limestone-rich soils of Mt. Harlan, this wine is an aromatic beauty, revealing layers of jasmine, citrus, stone fruits and chaparral. On the palate, it is both lush and lively, with alluring layers of white peach, vanilla bean and lemon zest balanced by bright cool-climate acidity and a soft, supple mouthfeel that adds to the lingering richness of the finish.
