Kalin Cellars

Kalin Cellars is a small winery located in Marin County, California which produces 7,000 cases per year of wine made by completely traditional European methods. These time and labor intensive procedures severely limit the quantity - but not the quality - of wine that we are able to produce.
Red wines are fermented for several weeks in wooden "cuves" and aged in new French oak barrels. These wines are neither fined nor filtered - they are naturally clarified and stabilized by settling and aging in small cooperage.
White wines are fermented and aged in new French oak barrels. These wines receive the minimum of fining to achieve brilliance and stability, and are bottled without filtration.
Vineyard sources are selected based on the superiority of the soil type and their being situated in the coolest possible microclimate suitable for the variety being grown. Due to the high natural acids present in cool climate fruit, all red and white wines are able to undergo complete malolactic fermentation. We produce exclusively 100% single vineyard wines.
These optimal vineyard and winemaking elements combine to produce wines of exceptional complexity and balance - classic New World wines evolved from centuries of European artisanal tradition and experience.

Robert Parker:

The 2001 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon, all from the Wente Estate in Livermore Valley. Leighton has been excelling with this wine for decades, and the 2001, at age 14, is an incredibly fresh, exuberant wine, with beautiful caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, lanolin, medium to full body, great acidity and a long, heady finish. This is a gorgeous wine that was bottled without filtration after aging sur lie in French oak, of which 50% was new. It will certainly last for at least another decade or more.

Vineyard:
The grape source is Charles Heintz Vineyard located on the crest of a steep hillside on the Sonoma Coast.  The vineyard is surrounded by Gravenstein apple orchards and is planted with an old low-yielding, Burgundian clone of Chardonnay.  The cool coastal climate, combined with limestone and marine shale sub-soil, results in yields of 1-1/2 to 2 tons per acre of exceptional quality and distinctive fruit.
Winemaking and Cellar Practice:
A special selection of grapes were hand picked and sorted, crushed and pressed. The juice was fermented for eleven months in new French oak barrels. The wine was racked, clarified by bentonite fining, and bottled sur lie in August 1996.
Characteristics:
The 1995 vintage produced roasted nut aromas combined with crisp apple-like flavors to produce a terroir-driven, Meursault style Chardonnay. The scents and flavors of this wine emanate from the marine fogscape of the Sonoma Coast, and the marine shale and limestone terroir. These rich flavors and aromas are reminiscent of a freshly baked yellow plum tart, ground cinnamon, roasted almonds, etc. The unusually favorable fruit-acid structure of this cool climate wine will allow for the sustained development of bottle complexity.

A special Cuvée Rare bottling of 1994 Livermore Valley Chardonnay has been designated “Cuvée Le Willy”.
Cuvée Le Willy received "Stealth Cuvee" methods (including two years of sur lies aging and additional bottle development) and is substantially different from the 1994 Livermore Valley Chardonnay which was released several years ago.
Less than eighty cases of this very special and limited wine were produced.
Cuvée Le Willy was produced from the original 47 acre Wente estate vineyard established in 1883 in the Livermore Valley.
Following the discovery of gold in California in 1848 the population of San Francisco exploded from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a population of 36,000 by 1852. Livermore Valley was one of the most proximate wine growing areas with direct access to San Francisco Bay. Grape growing and winemaking rapidly expanded to meet the needs of the growing population.
