CHAPPELLET 'GROWER COLLECTION' CHARDONNAY CALESA VINEYARD
CHAPPELLET

The 2019 Chardonnay Calesa Vineyard takes some time to emerge from its shell, offering mineral-laced white peach, jasmine and salted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and expansive, with a sense of energy derived from its dichotomy of honeyed fruits, shimmery, rocky tones and bright acidity, and it finishes with extraordinary length. It's approachable now but will continue to improve in bottle over the next 5+ years and hold for several more. 1,500 cases produced.
