Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is light golden in color and displays expressive fruit aromas of yellow apple and tropical fruit complexed by toasty vanilla and crème brulee. The bouquet is pure and direct with guava, nectarine, golden delicious apple and pears. The palate is rich, full and citrusy with traces of butterscotch and vanilla in the finish. The fruit is reigned in by great acidity and has a persistent malty fl avor. Since its founding, Chalk Hill has been producing artisan wines from our Estate vineyards in the hills of northeastern Sonoma County. For four decades we have studied, prodded and coaxed our complex terroir to ensure that our Estate wines deliver vivid aromatics, commanding avors, great character and regional accuracy. While our 300+ acres of vineyards surrounding the winery will always be the cornerstone of our identity, starting with the 2011 vintage, in addition to our Estate Chardonnay, we started producing our rst Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. This Sonoma Coast Chardonnay comes from extraordinary vineyards throughout Sonoma County consisting primarily of Foley Family estate vineyards. Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay features fruit from some of the best sites in Carneros, Chalk Hill, lower Sonoma Valley and the Alexander Valley. The fruit coming from the Chalk Hill AVA provides richness, concentration, viscosity and nuttiness, while the Carneros AVA delivers structure and notes of apple and pear.
