2017 Stags Leap Chardonnay Napa Valley
Aroma: The fragrant citrus blossom bouquet opens with aromas of delicate Meyer lemon and lime zest,
Fresh white peach, and floral honeysuckle, alongside more subtle hints of Tarte Tatin and brioche toast
(a nod to the well-integrated French Oak) which fills the glass and encourages you to dive into this lively Chardonnay.
Palate: Refreshingly mouthwatering with nuances of lemon meringue, green apple,
Guava, and Asian pear, while also showing a luscious texture that is rich and
Balanced (hinting at the delicate battonage lees stirring that occurs during the winemaking process).
Finish: Well-integrated vanilla and caramel oak notes and extraordinary length and depth,
this wine is round, full, and bright, yet generous in style and maintains a core of
Freshness due to its acidity, which creates an elegant Chardonnay full of grace and complexity.
