Stuhlmuller Vineyards Chardonnay Alexander Valley Estate Bottled 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

To accentuate the signature fruit flavors and nuttiness of our estate grapes, we exclusively used indigenous yeast to craft our 2007 Estate Chardonnay. The wine was 100 percent barrel fermented sur lie for eight months in Vosges and Allier barrels (12 percent new oak), and also underwent 60 percent indigenous malolactic fermentation. In order to create a creamy texture on the mid-palate, the lees were stirred a handful of times throughout the winter.

Since 1982, Stuhlmuller Vineyards has built a reputation as growers of world-class grapes, selling their coveted fruit to a number of top area wineries. By the mid-‘90s, Fritz Stuhlmuller was so inspired by the complex wines being made from his family’s vineyard that he established a small, artisan winery bearing the Stuhlmuller name. The vineyard’s unique terroir creates Chardonnay fruit with classic Alexander Valley tropical characteristics, food-friendly citrus acidity and a distinctive mineral touch. The Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing hints of sage and bay leaf coupled with the region's signature flavors of rich cherry, black fruit and cocoa. In 2000 Stuhlmuller Vineyards built a new winery on the property, sized precisely to handle the small amounts of world-class, estate fruit the Stuhlmullers select to create their wines. Guided by gifted winemaker Leo Hansen (and consulting winemaker Kerry Damskey), Stuhlmuller Vineyards handcrafts, small-lot wines that embody a rich, expressive charm, and a distinctive sense of place.

A lovely nose with nuanced honey, toasted wood, nutmeat, yellow flowers and dusty earth tone. In the mouth the texture is just fantastic, bright and balanced with intense yet tense and focused mandarin orange, apricot and fig notes that are framed with just a hint of almond and measured oak notes. The finish is fruity, clean and crisp with refreshing acids and a delicacy to the flavors that makes this a winner for geek and novice alike. 93pts

Crisp, lightly oaked nose with hints of butter, popped corn and lemon curd. Palate is juicy, lemony, round and big with and a nice acidic aftershock that sticks around for a bit delivering more fruit and oak.

Sweet thick nutty buttery nose. Flavor is a consistent plateau of spicy toasted buttery oak. Faaantastic.
