Apple sauce, peach purée, buttercream, vanilla and cinnamon spice flavors characterize this tasty Napa Chard. It has a scour of refreshing acidity and a long, pleasant, fairly complex finish.

There's something Chablisian about this Chardonnay. It's partly the acidity, which is high, and partly the gunmetal minerality, courtesy of another cool vintage in the southern Napa/Carneros region where the grapes were grown. Add in oak-infused pineapples, peaches and pears, and you have a fairly significant wine that could even benefit from some years in the cellar.

A gorgeous bouquet of green apple, pear, and citrus fruits mingles with notes of jasmine, honeysuckle, and warm pie crust. These inviting aromas lead to flavors of gingered pears, vanilla cream, and citrus zest that lightly lingers to a satisfying finish.

A fine job; this Chardonnay emphasizes structure and food compatibility rather than fruity extraction. There's good apple and peach flavor, bright acidity, enough oak to season and a sprinkling of dusty tannin.

Lush and complex. Fruity flavors range from fresh green apples to spicy ripe pears. The oak is fine and smoky, while barrel fermentation and lees aging help craft a creamy texture. The finish is long and rich.

Winemaker's Notes:

Hawks Crest is the "house wine" of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and known for fine quality and exceptional value, these wines have been handcrafted in the Napa Valley by SLWC since 1974. Hawk Crest consistently delivers distinctive, balanced and approachable wines that are ready to enjoy upon release and will continue to improve with age. The range has a dedicated winemaker Mark Smith, who joined Stag’s Leap in 1999 and immediately set about taking the wines to the next level. The main drive for this has come in the sourcing of the grapes which now come mostly from the Paso Robles and Lake County while the Chardonnay is from the the cooler Santa Lucia Highlands. Hawk Crest Chardonnay spends 7 months on its lees with 40% fermented in barrel. It opens with soft aromas of white peach and lemon alongside subtle notes of jasmine and oak spice. Styled after a Macon Village Chardonnay, the wine has a rich silky mouthfeel, medium body, and finishes with bright acidity laced with minerality. The softness of this Chardonnay makes this wine ideal with chicken soup, baked polenta, avodcado based dishes and grilled pork chops.
