K&L Notes

Vineyard sources include some of the most highly regard sites in California for Chardonnay: Bien Nacido, Lone Oak, Rincon and Sierra Madre. Winery note: "Vibrant and inviting, this wine captures the essence of Chardonnay grown on the cool, windswept Central Coast. Aromas of apricot, sweet hay and green apple leap from the glass. On the palate, deeper layers of fresh baked apple pie and anise emerge, with refreshing acidity and hints of subtle French oak carrying the flavors to a pure, radiant finish."

    Yet again Calera has put together what has to be the single best value California Chardonnay on the market today. With decades of winemaking pedigree and unrivaled sourcing power, the releases from Calera just keep getting better. The 2017 Central Coast Chardonnay comes from the crème de la crème of vineyard sites including: Bien Nacido and Sierra Madre in Santa Maria Valley, Talley's Rincon vineyard in Arroyo Grande and Lone Oak in the Santa Lucia Highlands. All of these are vineyards many producers release as single vineyard wines at $40-$70 per bottle. Stylistically Calera always manages to create a balanced style with plenty of weight, texture and richness, whilst at the same time retaining beautiful, fresh, cool coastal climate acidity and brightness in the wine. The 2017 shows crunchy golden delicious apple, preserved lemon, pie crust, split white oak, toasted grains and sea spray notes. Medium-plus bodied with a nice verve and zestiness to enliven the palate on the finish. Lovely length and minerality too. Just a rocking wine for such a bargain price point.
    Top Value!
