Established nearly 4 decades ago, this Sonoma County icon has produced some of the most coveted, high-elevation whites and reds from one of California's truly diverse micro-climates. Brimming with generous notes of tropical melon, zesty citrus and seductive jasmine flowers, this Sauvignon Blanc will surely keep you coming back for more.
Founded in 1972, Chalk Hill Estate made their name with Chardonnay, but in 2010 they made a splash in the pages of the Wine Advocate with their 2007 Proprietary Red, scoring 95 points. To this day it remains one of the finest wines to emerge each year from the Chalk Hill AVA. In fact, you flipped for the 2013 Chalk Hill red wine, which sold out in a flash thanks to its luxurious profile and its nice 96-point score from the Wine Advocate.
This is a creamy, lush and layered white that offers a depth of fruitforward intensity. Peach, melon, dried herb and a hint of ginger combine on the broad palate.
