Kalin Cellars Cuvée W Chardonnay 1995
The combination of old vine fruit produced from a traditional low-yielding clone, with a perfect soil and climate for this variety, ensures a wine of substantial depth, complexity and style. The microclimate specific aromas are reminiscent of lime blossoms, linden and freshly toasted bread. The flavors are rich, powerful, but counterbalanced by an extraordinary, racy mineral acid fruit structure, which can only be derived from the unique gravel subsoil found in the Livermore Valley. All of the special essences which are drawn from the subterranean depths of real "terroir" are abundantly manifested in this singular wine.
