Calera Central Coast Chardonnay 2013
Wine EnthusiastThe nose on this wine from nine vineyards ranging from Santa Clara to Santa Barbara reflects much of what the large appellation offers, but in subtle ways: touches of Golden Delicious apples, grilled pineapple, toasted coconut and chalk. The flavors surround a Meyer lemon zest tension, with apple flesh fruits and a zesty acidity that holds throughout without biting.
Wine SpectatorClean, pure and juicy, offering a refreshing mix of ripe pear, apple and melon flavors, shaded by a chalky minerality and followed by a long lingering finish. Drink now. 13,929 cases made.
