Calera 40th Anniversary Central Coast Chardonnay 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Mt. Harlan|
Wine EnthusiastAlthough the challenging vintage resulted in just a half-ton per acre of Chardonnay in this dry appellation (a third of its normal yield), this wine is fantastic. Flinty and smoky aromas lead to Gala apple, white peach and lemon peel on the nose, while the palate combines salt, grapefruit pith and seared apple flavors. A sharp line of acidity brings it all into balance.
