All the wines at Chalk Hill are estate bottled, and each of their 60 vineyard blocks are sustainably farmed and harvested by hand individually. Opulent and toasty, Chalk Hill Russian River Chardonnay is one of California's standard bearers for this French-born variety. Look for notes of tropical fruit, citrus, caramel, hazelnut, apricot and pear. A refined butter quality comes from aging in French oak. Serve with crab, scallops, fish and roasted chicken. It is the perfect accompaniment to rich butter or cream sauces, as well as creamy cheeses such as Brie, Delice de Bourgogne and Fromage d'Affinois.

Wine SpectatorLots of spice, apricot, fig and honeydew melon flavors combine for a full-bodied, mouth-coating experience, with a finish that sails on and on, gaining depth. Drink now through 2022.-

Wine EnthusiastSalty and briny around a fruity core of green apple and Meyer lemon meringue, this approachable white is full bodied and wholly concentrated, with plenty of integrated oak. A steely ring of acidity keeps it from becoming too rich, with a finish nicely polished in vanilla.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Estate delivers scents of guava, mango, ripe melon and allspice with hints of buttered toast and praline. Full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth with tons of tropical fruit flavors matched by a pleasant oiliness to the texture and refreshing acid line, it finishes long and spicy.
