Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015


SKU 16538


Aromas of bright lemon citrus, fresh green apple with hints of subtle elderflower fill the glass and pique your interest in this crisp Chardonnay. On the palate, you'll find a classic refreshing Chardonnay with a vibrancy of citrus that transitions into lemon curd while also maintaining a roundness in texture that is balanced (hinting at the delicate battonage lees stirring during the winemaking process). With a nutty hazelnut undertone and spicy white pepper, exotic floral finish, this wine is focused, yet generous in style and maintains freshness due to its acidity which creates a Chardonnay of lovely complexity and depth.

Wine AdvocateThe Chablis-like 2015 Chardonnay does not see any malolactic, and only a small amount (25%) of new oak. The result is a premier cru Chablis-like wine that captures the freshness, displaying touches of poached pear, white peach, loads of minerality and floral notes. Drink it over the next several years.
