Review: 2017 Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay
Chalk Hill’s (gray-label) Estate Chardonnay is one of its most classic bottlings. Bold with buttery oak, it folds in notes of fig, lemon peel, and pears, and as with other bottlings of this wine — grapes from the eponymous AVA — a slight layer of coconut peeks through. The finish hints at a mild nuttiness — in other words, Chalk Hill’s Estate Chardonnay showing all its iconic character.
