Stonestreet Chardonnay Broken Road Chardonnay Wine 2011
Broken Road is consistently one of our most savory, stony wines from the mountain and in the cooler 2011 vintage it displays those elements in spades. Lemon verbena and int emerge rst from the glass, opening to a rich entry that cascades through peach pit, shell and ocean spray-all culminating in a nish with astonishing grip and acidity. While this wine is powerful and delicious now, it will easily reward ten years of proper cellaring.
External Reviews for Stonestreet Chardonnay Broken Road Chardonnay Wine
Even though this Chardonnay has rich, ripe flavors of tropical fruit, peaches, apples and honey, it possesses an austere elegance by virtue of dryness, minerality and acidity. The blocks from which the grapes were grown are part of Stonestreet’s holdings in the mountains overlooking Alexander Valley. This is a fine wine, intricate and powerful. Drink now–2015.
The 2011 Chardonnay Broken Road is a great introduction to the Stonestreet wines. Rich layered and deeply textured — but not at all heavy — the 2011 is simply brilliant. Lemon oil, butter and crushed rocks are all very much alive in the glass. The 2011 is absolutely delicious, but it could use another 6–12 months in bottle to fully come together, as it is a bit tight at the moment. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2018.

Bright yellow. Highly nuanced nose combines lemon custard, smoked meat, minerals and hazelnut complicated by a sulfidey quality. Plush but very dry, with a lightly saline quality adding interest to the perfumed pineapple and mineral flavors. Finishes stony, dry and long. This is remarkably Burgundian for a California chardonnay in its price range. A worthy successor to the outstanding 2010 bottling.
A viscous wonder! The golden hue lures you into of potpourri of baked pear and apple tartlet aromaa. The palate suggest a completely different spectrum with tropical notes of fresh sliced pineapple and guava. The creamy mid-palate is tempered by a streak of stony minerality and a kiss of oak to keep it all angular on the finish. A full bodied effort this is tempting and delicious now though it will age for another 3-4 years. It s hard to believe the price on this release all sourced from a single mountain estate site. This is exactly what many of my California faithful seek for a house or party chardonnay. Neil Mechanic.
