User Reviews for Stonehedge Chardonay Terroir Select Blanc

Winemaker's Notes:

Santa Lucia Highlands which is geographically located at the Northern tip of Monterey County, has the best microclimate and soil for growing Chardonnay. Cool nights, follwed by foggy mornings and then high temperatures during the day provides ideal growing conditions. This region, already has some of the best Chardonnay produced in California, is also the home to "Old Oak Ranch."This wine is the result of marriage of 2 lots, (50-50) one of which has completed Malolactic fermentation and one which has not. Malolactic fermentation brings the wholeness and buttery character, and the non malolactic brings bright fruit and structure.The result is a supreme balance that could keep the most snobbish wine drinker happy.88 points! - This rich yellow Chardonnay opens with a lemon like bouquet with notes of buttered popcorn and banana. On the palate, this wine is round, creamy, with apple, pineapple, and other citrusy influences. The finish is dry and a bit subtle. The wine is a very nice everyday offering. We felt the wine would pair nicely with manny foods and particularly well with sharp cheddar cheese and crackers. - Kens Wine GuideBronze - San Diego National Wine Competition 2008Bronze - Dallas Morning News Wine Competition 2008
