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 AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Estate is scented of ripe Bosc pears, fresh apple slices and nutmeg with hints of peach kernels, lightly browned toast and struck flint. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers plenty of apple and pear goodness, with a satiny texture and lively line, finishing creamy. 14,000 cases produced.

Wine EnthusiastDark gold in color, the wine's flavors delve into rich, honeyed tones of baked apple, fig and mango, the use of oak substantial in style. There's a clean, short finish after plenty of full-bodied concentration and ripeness.
