Wine & Spirits
"Courtney Foley oversees winemaking at Chalk Hill, the 1,300-acre estate her father, Bill Foley, purchased in 2010. 117 of those acres are devoted to chardonnay, rooted in the layer of chalk-white volcanic ash that gives the estate and the surrounding appellation its name. Foley produced a brisk and spicy 2017, its dense aromas of peach fuzz, flowers and baked apple rich and tight enough to handle the toasty oak tannins. There’s cool earthiness running through it, balancing the wine’s warmth and lengthening the fruit savor. Serve this cellar temperature, as a rich aperitif or with Dungeness crab."

Wine Spectator
"Intense and well-structured, with flavors of Bosc pear, Fuji apple and ruby grapefruit, supported by firm acidity. Dried savory herb notes linger on the fresh, pure-tasting finish. Drink now through 2023."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Chardonnay Estate opens with notes of toast, cream, lemon pith and hay over a core of Red Delicious apple and banana chips. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and creamy with toasty spice and honey notions, finishing long and lifted with juicy acidity."
