Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013

Member Review by vin0vin0:

This is a fantastic Napa chardonnay. This wine is well balanced with nice subtle oak, medium fine acidity, lovely crisp lemon meringue, ripe green apple and some pear. Great mouth feel, slightly viscous and tongue coating.

A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags’ Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s. Stags Leap Manor, as it was called in the 1920s, was known as one of the prominent country retreats in the Napa Valley at a time when resort and spa business was big.

As usual, Stag's Leap delivers. This one was a little bit more acidic on the finish, though.

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. - Winery

Aromas of vanilla highlighted by subtle notes of peach and melon. Flavors of fig, bright citrus, and clove harmonize in a lively counterpoint. An inviting viscosity, layers of texture and an ideal level of acidity round out the sensory experience.

Aromas of honeysuckle following through to flavors of green apple and orange peel on the palate are characteristic of Stags' Leap Chardonnay. The mid-palate is round with a creamy mouthfeel from aging on the lees and the finish has length that is complex yet crisp and balanced. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:At Stags Leap Winery, we appreciate wines that enhance conversation and artisanal foods. This Chardonnay is a story of balance, a delicious intersection of richness and minerality achieved through careful selection of fruit, hand picking, and traditional techniques that are part of the winerys classical standard of winegrowing.
