Winery

Distinct aromas of lemon zest, tart white peach and crisp pear show generously in this refreshing and focused cool-climate Chardonnay. On the palate, vibrant citrus fruit flavors are balanced by a wet stone core and pleasant undertones of light smoke. Driven by wonderful fruit intensity, lasting lemon minerality and bright acidity, the Stags' Leap Winery Chardonnay walks the ideal line between delicacy and weight.

This graceful Chardonnay opens with aromas of peach, yellow apple, spice and a pleasing sweet cream vanilla note. The wine has a soft entry with citrus and light honey notes that lead to a lingering sweet lemon finish. There is a nice balance to the acidity and minerality that enhances the freshness and elegance of this wine. Try pairing this medium-bodied Chardonnay with grilled whole fish with lemons and capers, seared scallops drizzled with lemon-infused olive oil, or roast chicken.

Wine

The Wine Advocate - "The estate’s biggest production cuvée is the 2013 Chardonnay Stags Leap District (25,000 cases produced). A very good value in Chardonnay, it sees no malolactic, is fermented and aged in a combination of 25% stainless steel, 25% new oak and 50% neutral wood, and represents a good California impersonation of a premier cru French Chablis. Notes of white corn, quince, pear and apple blossoms emerge from this medium-bodied, zesty, elegant 2013. Enjoy it over the next several years. "

Tasting Panel - "Smooth and juicy with clean, ripe fruit, sprightly acidity and a hint of oak; racy, clean, balanced and long."
