K&L Notes

The Mt. Harlan Chardonnay Vineyard was planted in 1984 on the same south facing slope as the Mills Pinot Noir. This vineyard was planted on its own roots using plant material from stray Chardonnay vines that were found interspersed among the Pinot vines of the original vineyards. Each year, this vineyard yields only slightly more than 2 tons per acre of very intense flavorful Chardonnay fruit. Leaner and more mineral than a typical California Chardonnay, the wines carry a creamy texture and a leanness that are unique due to the limestone soil.

    Another fantastic offering from the folks at Calera. On the nose, fresh pears, honey, stone fruit fill the glass. The palate is delicate, but rich, soft, but round and loaded with crisp apple, creamy lemon meringue and a long beautiful finish. A touch of sandalwood is balanced with perfect minerality to give this wine a fantastic mouth feel. Enjoy!
