Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities. During the twelve months of barrel aging, we regularly stirred the "lees" in barrel, which imparts an elegant fullness and creamy texture on the palate. In the glass, the wine is both creamy and crisp, with flavors of golden pear, vanilla, Meyer lemon and a hint of minerality on the long finish. Enjoy over the next one to three years with soft cheeses, fresh crab or roasted pork loin.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a relatively large production and a well-priced wine that shows creamy, lush layers of baked apple and pear. Voluptuous in style, it provides a backbone of balanced acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Chalk Hill Vineyard Estate has hints of buttered popcorn and banana chip to begin, with baker's yeast, baked Golden Delicious apple and yellow pear. Light to medium-bodied with yeasty fruits in the mouth and buttery notions, it has good freshness to carry the finish. 63,750 cases produced.
