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.

With a nose slightly marked by barrel fermentation aromas this remains impressively dry and savory, filled with notes of hay and lightly toasted oatmeal framing very pretty pear and crab apple fruit. With lovely purity and freshness on the palate, this combines super bright acids with lovely old wood textural notes yielding a wine that features super ripe fruit that reveals the cool climate nature of the vintage with it’s tart pineapple, lime and and pear flavors. Just so clear and pure on the palate, this is California ripe but with etched structure, and a long, tense finish that gain a fine almond note on the finale. Very much in my wheelhouse! 93pts

Another excellent value in Chardonnay, this 100% Chardonnay was aged in equal parts stainless steel and oak. With abundant aromas of tangerines and orange blossoms intertwined with hints of vanillin spice and honeyed citrus, it is a medium-bodied, fresh white wine to drink over the next 1-2 years. - Robert Parker 89 PointsAn easy Chardonnay to drink now, with toasty oak, butter, tangerine, apricot and yeasty flavors. Shows brilliant acidity, which gives it a clean bite. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 87 PointsModerately rich, offering ripe peach, nectarine, honeysuckle and citrus notes, turning simple in the end. Drink now. 8,380 cases made. JL - Wine Spectator Magazine 86 Points

With vibrant cool citrus aromas as well as notes of pear and green pineapple, this is fresh and inviting expression of Chardonnay. On the palate, pear, citrus oil and lemon custard flavors are supported by sophisticated hints of white almond, clove, jasmi
