Embodying the cool-climate essence of the Central Coast, this sleek and radiant Chardonnay displays alluring aromas of Asian pear, apricot and lemon zest, with hints of chapparal and lavender. On the palate, lively acidity and a supple, mouthcoating texture frame the pear, citrus and stone fruit flavors carrying the wine to a lush, energetic finish.
In 1975, legendary vintner and pioneer Josh Jensen founded Calera (Spanish for “lime kiln”) high in the
Gavilan Mountains of California’s majestic Central Coast. In the four decades since, Calera has helped
establish the Central Coast as one of the New World’s most exciting wine regions, while earning acclaim
as one of California’s iconic wineries. Sourced from some of the appellation’s finest vineyards, the Calera
Central Coast Chardonnay has become a benchmark for the region, balancing lush richness with beautiful
minerality and bright citrus flavors
