Chalk Hill Estate Winery Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2020, California

Yellow in color with a golden hue.

Strong nose of citrus, oak, vanilla, spices, lemons, apples, light earth, peaches, white flowers and white pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with limes, lemons, oak, earth, vanilla, light grapefruits, spices and black pepper.

Spicy finish with limes and lemon peel.

This is a nice Oaky Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast. Fruit forward and spicy. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Needed 15 minutes of airtime to bring in more complexity, and balance the oak notes.

A nice and easy drinking Chardonnay. Good by itself as a sipping wine and good for parties.

I paired it with a nice day by the pool.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.
