Wine Spectator 89 points - Intense, with rich, vibrant pear, nectarine, melon and green fig notes, shaded by lightly toasty, smoky oak and a touch of citrus skin pithiness, gaining on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 15,418 cases made.

This is perhaps the most elegant Chardonnay ever produced by Chalk Hill. The wine displays the tropical fruit and mineral characteristics of the estate, and is delicately infused with citrus, pear and honeysuckle, an imprint from the cool vintage conditions.

The light straw/gold-hued 2007 Chardonnay Estate reveals an attractive bouquet of smoky hazelnuts, nectarines, and buttered citrus, medium to full body, and good freshness and acidity. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
