Calera Chardonnay Mt. Harlan | Fortieth Anniversary Vintage 2015 / 750 ml.

Item#: 34712

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2017
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.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 15, 2017
A focused and refined white, with hints of chamomile to the white cherry, elderflower and white peach flavors. The crisp finish is filled with notes of dried green herbs. Drink now through 2020. 328 cases made.

From the Producer

Star fruit, cherimoya, white peach, honeysuckle and Bosc pear aromas waft from this 2015 Mt Harlan Chardonnay… soft flavors of Honeycrisp apple, sandalwood, soft caramel, lemon custard, mineral and chestnut give a succulent, expansive, mouth-coating, gently tart mouthfeel. This wine is concentrated, generous, deep and lingering with a beautiful richness that develops further with time in the glass and offers a long life ahead in the cellar.

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Briny aromas of lemon peel and crisp apple show on the inviting nose of this bottling. There’s a firm grip to the palate, where grapefruit peel and apple flesh flavors align. (Matt Kettmann)

A great taste of this iconic estate without breaking the bank, this bottling is light in the glass with aromas of dried cherry, scorched earth and chaparral spice. The palate combines cranberry sauce and toasted sagebrush with an ample tannin profile. (Matt Kettmann)
