Recently purchased by Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines, continuing traditions of Fred Furth who founded Chalk Hill in 1972, which encompasses 280 acres of vineyards. A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Semillion, 4% Sauvignon Gris and 3% Sauvignon Musque, the latter 2 adding an interesting dynamic to the wine and distinctive aromas. Bright citrus, tropical and floral aromas. Palate shows peach, melon, herb and earthy tones, well balanced with acidity, smooth yet robust on a lingering finish ending rich with wet stone character.

Not really my cup of tea. I want my Sauv Blanc to be green, mineral, acidic. Bold is OK, but this wine might as well be knocking you over the head. The nose has a touch of that telltale “catty” quality, and also something savory like garlic. The palate is weighty and very rich. I’ll never understand the inclination to oak Sauv Blanc, but here we are. Unbalanced and kinda “hot” on the finish. Maybe this is meant to lie down for a few years? It’s certainly not very drinkable right now.

Love Chalk Hill. Mineral driven with florals and fragrance plus snappy fruit
