    Glossary

This is a beautifully aromatic wine, with stone fruit flavors of fresh peaches and nectarines mingling with pineapple, a hint of mandarin orange and other citrus fruits. A classic example of cool climate Chardonnay, this is bright and crisp, but also features lightly toasted undertones that give it length and richness on the palate. With a round, floral finish, this is a refreshing wine that is deftly balanced, ready to enjoy now but with the acidic structure to be cellared for several years.

The estate’s biggest production cuvee 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. (Oct 2014)
