Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards and Winery is located in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. The winery has a long history dating back to the 1800s when it was originally a dairy farm. Today, the estate spans over 1,300 acres, with 300 acres of vineyards planted to a variety of grapes.
The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are sourced from several estate vineyards located throughout the Russian River Valley. The vineyards are planted on a variety of soil types and elevations, which contribute to the wine’s complexity and depth of flavor.
The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested and sorted to ensure only the best fruit is used for the wine. The grapes are then destemmed and fermented in small, open-top tanks. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new.
The oak aging adds complexity and structure to the wine, while allowing the fruit to shine through. The wine is then bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve its natural flavors and aromas.
Chalk Hill Sonoma Pinot Noir 2019 is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age for several years. With its balance of fruit, tannins, and acidity, it will continue to evolve in the bottle and develop even more complexity over time.
