Lot #11 CHALK HILL ESTATE VINEYARDS & WINERY
Chalk Hill Estate
- Chalk Hill
ABOUT THE WINE:
While Chalk Hill Estate is known for its rich and elegant Chardonnay, “Culmination Red” marks the culmination of over 40 years of site-specific research with the goal of creating a unique red wine that evokes the character of the Chalk Hill Estate. They have matched their diverse terrain, soils and mesoclimates to specific Bordeaux varieties, clones and rootstocks.
For over 50 years, Chalk Hill Estate has been committed to creating terroir-driven wines of character, richness and elegance from the diverse terrain of Sonoma County’s rolling hills. With a passionate dedication, they showcase the incredible diversity of their estate vineyards to make the best quality wines possible with a vision for generations to come. More than two-thirds of Chalk Hill remains uncultivated. The winery’s vineyards are thoughtfully woven amongst the native oak woodlands, meadows and streams. The vines are maintained using low-input, sustainable viticultural practices to preserve the long-term viability of the ecosystem.
This delicious red wine is swarming with aromas of black cherries, dried roses, peppercorns, smoked meat, and lavender. The palate is filled with flavors of blackberry jam, black cherries, chocolate, and vanilla. This wine has great depth and layers of complexity with soft silky tannins. It is truly a delectable wine that drinks well now and will continue to age well over the next 10 years.
