Winemaker’s Notes

Aromas of lemon, zested orange peel and a hint of toasted marshmallow. Balanced and full with concentrated flavors of lemon oil followed by rich and creamy minerality. Known for its long, rich and elegant finish, this vintage is no exception.

Courtney Foley oversees winemaking at Chalk Hill, the 1,300-acre estate her father, Bill Foley, purchased in 2010. 117 of those acres are devoted to chardonnay, rooted in the layer of chalk-white volcanic ash that gives the estate and the surrounding appellation its name. Foley produced a brisk and spicy 2017, its dense aromas of peach fuzz, flowers and baked apple rich and tight enough to handle the toasty oak tannins. There’s cool earthiness running through it, balancing the wine’s warmth and lengthening the fruit savor. Serve this cellar temperature, as a rich aperitif or with Dungeness crab.
