Tasting Notes
Technical Details

Grown high on the limestone-rich soils of Mt. Harlan, this beautifully aromatic wine displays enticing layers of Honeycrisp apple, peach and fresh brioche. The apple and stone fruit layers are echoed on the lush, mouthcoating palate, with undercurrents of cedar, wet stone and spice adding nuance and complexity to a long, resonant finish.

Chardonnay grape blend.

The Estate

Calera’s Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average elevation of 2,200 feet it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.

Wine Making

After a cool winter, the growing season began with spring rains that replenished our soils on Mt. Harlan and set the stage for an excellent vintage. After a late-March budbreak, we enjoyed temperate, sunny days and cool nights throughout spring and summer, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen, while preserving the bright natural acids that we prize. With no significant heat events, the vintage produced age-worthy wines with enticing aromatics, lovely freshness and purity, and beautifully delineated varietal flavors.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with pork, rich fish such as salmon and tuna, vegetarian and poultry dishes.
