- Calculated at Checkout
The 2018 Chardonnay Grower Collection Calesa Vineyard has a very pretty, delicate nose with touches of floral perfume and quince that float over a core of spiced peaches, hazelnuts, cut hay and lemon cream. The medium-bodied palate takes its time to unfurl to spicy, perfumed fruits, rounded but fresh and lively, with a long, layered finish. Lovely. Drink now-2026.
Wine Tasting Notes
Seamlessly balancing lovely textural richness with finely tuned acidity, this radiant Chardonnay offers alluring aromatics of tropical flowers, guava, orange zest and quince, with underlying hints of crème fraiche and sweet baking spices adding nuance and poise. On the palate, flavors of bright citrus and mango glide across a supple, creamy texture, with the acidity providing lift and focus to a long, high-toned fruit finish.
