Chalk Hill Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2020

America, California

The 2020 vintage was a dry growing season, with only a few spring showers, but we had good fruit-set and cluster development. Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes came in perfectly ripe and beautiful at harvest. Our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of lemon curd, grapefruit and white flower. The palate is clean and crisp with flavors of mango and honeydew melon flowing through the long, juicy finish.

Winery Description

Chalk Hill is the only 100% estate winery in the Chalk Hill/Russian River Valley AVA in Sonoma County.  Founded in 1972, Chalk Hill’s unique topography and climactic and geological diversity allow both Burgundian and Bordeaux varieties to produce world class wines on the Estate. Chalk Hill has been a leader in clonal research for many years and each unique vineyard plot is meticulously matched to the grape variety and clone to which it is best suited.  Indeed the winery’s famed Estate Chardonnay is made from the Chalk Hill clone, which was developed at the winery. The quest for quality is the basis for all viticultural and winemaking decisions at Chalk Hill Estate.  Winemaker Courtney Foley uses light-handed techniques that allow each bottle to express the essence of the vineyard.
