Calera Wine Company’s 2000 Central Coast Chardonnay is a testament to the benefits of utilizing multi-vineyard fruit; the artisan like process of blending flavors that bring out the unique qualities of the source vineyards. Morrell Wine Tasting Institute rated this wine 90-Points writing, “This wine enjoys generous, interesting, broad, toasty nose with a Burgundy-like complexity and strikes handsome balance in its lovely flavor profile.”

Created by master winemaker Josh Jensen, this wine has a lovely nose with fresh tropical fruit aromas and hints of lemon and pineapple. Among many other aspects, the winemaker believes to make great wine; you must employ the gentlest methods possible. Calera’s one-of-a-kind,multi-level (7 tier), gravity-flow winery built into the side of a mountain allows wines to be moved in the gentlest possible way, by the natural force of gravity. The resulting wine expresses all the natural “greatness” of their origin vineyard.
