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.

Wine Enthusiast - "The oak in this wine is restrained, partly because it aged in stainless steel and a sizable percentage of neutral oak. Still, a richness of apple and pear compote provide a steady level of richness, while a lemon squeeze of acidity keeps it fresh and youthful."

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "Beautifully balanced and ready for the dinner table, the 2014 Stags' Leap Chardonnay brings ripe apples and sweet oak to the fore. The wine's firm palate makes it a fine choice with grilled white meats. Drinking well now. (Tasted: May 9, 2016, San Francisco, CA)"
