Overview of the Wine
Kalpela Wines of Mendocino County are the namesake of the native American Pomo chief who our little local village Calpella was named. These wines are produced from many old-vine vineyards located in the hills and benchlands which overlook the headwaters of the beautiful Russian River. These extremely well-priced wines are not simple ordinary négociant wines which you find in this price category, but are fruit driven, complex and well-balanced wines produced and bottled at our winery in Redwood Valley. The wines are lovingly aged and or fermented in our forest of American and French oak barrels, again unusual for wines of this price. Kalpela’s retro Napa Valley/European label depicts tradition, quality and value.
Grape / Blend
Mendocino County, California
This vintage displays a beautiful pale gold color and bright aromas of Meyer lemon, French tarragon, and tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. Uplifting flavors of navel orange, tangerine, and pink apples combine to give this Chardonnay a luscious but bright mouth-feel. Rich flavors and balanced acidity lead into a long, lingering finish. Ready to enjoy and a very fair price.
