Chalk Hill was established in 1972 and has been producing high acclaimed wines in the Russian River Valley appellation of Sonoma County, California.  Nowhere else will you find such transitional terroir as this: nestled atop the cooler Russian River Valley, just over the ridge from the warmer Alexander Valley.  Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and the cellar, decades of clonal research, sustainable viticulture practices and a minimalist approach to winemaking all combine to produce these signature wines of character and richness that reflect this special place.

With nearly 300 acres planted to vine, more than two-thirds of the estate remains uncultivated. Wild grasslands and heritage oak forests cover the rolling hills, while culinary gardens provide a bounty of produce used in the estate’s food and wine experience.

Tasting Notes

Buttery brioche, pear, vanilla bean and golden apple on the nose.  The palate is full, round, textural with expressive acidity that keeps everything fresh and a bright.  The textural richness and harmonious acidity make this an ideal white wine to elevate a number of dishes; enjoy this Chardonnay with shellfish like lobster and scallops dipped in butter, pastas with seafood, lemon or cream sauces or soft bloomy rind cheeses.   

Method

Handpicked Chardonnay, 100% barrel fermented, using a combination of new and used French oak.  Chalk Hill’s various strains of indigenous yeasts vie for supremacy in the fermenting process providing layers of texture and nuance. Malolactic fermentation and a prescribed regimen of bâtonnage, the periodic stirring of the lees in the barrel, serves to add texture and mouthfeel.
