While the 2010 offers all the concentration and viscosity of previous Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blancs, it is decidedly more focused and pure in its fruit expression. Look for peach, guava, grapefruit and jasmine in the bouquet. The palate adds green apple and candied lemon peel to the mix.
Equal parts delicious and intriguing, with spicy, smoky and floral notes. Meyer lemon, apricot and nectarine flavors end with a juicy, spicy finish, with touches of spice box and crushed rock.
Chalk Hill's 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is a gorgeous wine loaded with cool-climate varietal character. Lemon, white peaches, tomato leaf and sage are nicely expressed in this vibrant, focused white. Ideally, the 2010 is best enjoyed over the next year or two, while the flavors remain crisp and lively. This is a hugely attractive wine from Chalk Hill.
