26. Stuhlmuller Vineyards Estate Chardonnay (2011)

« Prev Next » 26 of 29
With a nose slightly marked by barrel fermentation aromas this remains impressively dry and savory, filled with notes of hay and lightly toasted oatmeal framing very pretty pear and crab apple fruit. With lovely purity and freshness on the palate, this combines super bright acids with lovely old wood textural notes yielding a wine that features super ripe fruit that reveals the cool climate nature of the vintage with it’s tart pineapple, lime and and pear flavors. Just so clear and pure on the palate, this is California ripe but with etched structure, and a long, tense finish that gain a fine almond note on the finale. Very much in my wheelhouse! 93pts

  • 1384007BHWine The 2011 screams Sauvignon Blanc and it is hard to distinguish the other varietals that are in the bottle. I have had the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Conundrums. I like the 2009 best.
