Calera Wine Company, 2015 Calera Chardonnay Mt. Harlan

"On another level and a beautiful Chardonnay that does everything right, the 2015 Chardonnay Mt Harlan comes from limestone soils and spent 14 months in 30% new French oak. It has an incredible salinity as well as notes of citrus, tart apples, orange blossom and toasted bread. Clean, crisp and laser focused on the palate, yet with fruit and depth, it’s a dead ringer for a Grand Cru White Burgundy. It will be even better in another 6-12 months, and keep through 2025."

Calera Wine Company, 2015 Calera Chardonnay Mt. Harlan

"Although 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. —M.K."
