2008 Calera Central Coast Chardonnay
"Other top values from the iconic Calera winery include Calera's least expensive Chardonnay, the 2008 Central Coast, which comes from an assortment of vineyards in Monterey, Santa Clara, and San Benito counties. This cuvee is put through 100% malolactic, and is aged in 10% new French oak for ten months. It offers abundant notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, white currants, and tropical fruits. Crisp, elegant, mid-weight, and revealing no evidence of its wood aging, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 1-2 years."
