"The 2015 Chardonnay, which is labeled as the Fortieth Anniversary Vintage, has a ripe, yet classy and balanced style to go with lots of spiced orchard fruits, honeysuckle, and brioche aromas and flavors. It has beautifully sweet fruit, nicely integrated acidity and clean finish, all of which make it a smoking good Chardonnay that will drink nicely for 2-3 years."

Calera Wine Company

The fourth year of a drought gave us very low yields across California, resulting in wines with great depth and concentration. 2015 was the earliest and fastest harvest ever for Calera. Chardonnay grapes for the Central Coast bottling were picked August 24th through September 25th. After hand harvesting, the whole grape clusters were pressed and the juice was gently moved by gravity to Calera’s barrel cellar. Fermentation in barrels by native yeasts was followed by complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged without racking in French oak barrels, 10% new, for ten months. The separate vineyard lots were combined prior to bottling.
