Our 2013 Chalone Estate Chardonnay opens with gorgeous aromas of peach, pear, golden apple and citrus laced with hints of spice from French oak. The deliciously fruit-expressive flavors fan out across the palate and reveal the complex minerality, bright acidity and opulent texture that are the signatures of Chalone's limestone terroir. Malolactic fermentation added seductive nuances of crème brûlée to the long finish, while sur lie aging enhanced the silky mouthfeel. If you bottle age this wine, you'll find that the fresh, lemony notes in the aromas turn to complex brioche nuances that Winemaker Robert Cook finds very appealing.
