Wine Profile

Winemaker Notes
This beautiful 2014 Chardonnay possesses delightful notes of hibiscus, pineapple and citrus. Flavors are so wonderfully integrated and balanced; Fuji apple, lemon chiffon and a soft, round, sensuous mouthfeel with a nice bright sweet-tart personality. A delicious wine all around.
Production
Coming off of the third year of drought, the Central Coast wine region was expecting to see lower yields with struggling vines. Much to our surprise the vines responded well to the sunny winter and spring days, and were very productive. Although it was a very dry year we saw brilliant sunshine through the growing season with early harvest dates. The 2014 vintage turned out to be great, with good yields and intense flavors. After hand harvesting, the whole grape clusters were pressed and the juice was moved by gravity to Calera’s barrel cellar. Fermentation in barrels by native yeasts was followed by complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged without racking in French oak barrels, 10% new, for ten months. The separate vineyard lots were combined prior to bottling.
