A well-balanced wine that shows off pretty pear, citrus, melon, apple and vanilla notes, all tempered by a fine, mineral edge. Delicate, elegant and lovely.

Cardamom and chutney spices mingle with citrus, Pippin apple and flowery lemon-verbena aromas. Ripe apricot and pear flavors lead into a luscious mid-palate with a pretty mineral-tinged structure.

This racy, lemony Chardonnay takes the citrus idea almost too far, but not quite. A presence of fine oak harmonizes with high-toned flavors in appealing fashion, and the wine finishes cleanly. Here is a partner for a skillfully grilled Dover sole, as a young village Puligny might be.

A contrast of fleshy fruit and angular oak, this sets the mineral scent of less against the perfume of Bourbon and brown sugar. Give it some time to absorb some of the oak, then pour it with a veal roast.

With just a hint of oak, this Chardonnay is all about fruit and acidity. Itrsquo;s dry and crisp, with a firm, clean mouthfeel, and pleasant citrus, apple, pear and mineral flavors.

Combines subtlety and finesse, with smooth ripe pear, melon, ginger, spice and hazelnut flavors that are rich and full-bodied without being heavy. Ends with a long, graceful finish. Drink now through 2017. 19,658 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Karia Vineyard 750ml

Blends a tasty mix of fig, pear and citrus flavors with spicy, toasty oak, offering nice depth and complexity, coming down on the delicate side. Drink now through 2005.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Our Chardonnay greets you with 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.
