The Reserve Chardonnay represents the "best of the best" from Stags' Leap Winery. The winemaking process allows for authentic representation of the varietal; therefore, this wine exhibits iconic flavors of chardonnay: stone fruits, citrus and minerality. Additionally, the great structure of the wine allows it to be a perfect complement to many dishes.
The 2011 Stags’ Leap Viognier features spring blossom, chalk and stone fruit on the nose. The palate exhibits flavors of white peach, which is lifted by bright acidity and minerality. This is a complex wine that demonstrates elegance, balance and vibrancy.
Aromas of honeysuckle following through to flavors of green apple and orange peel on the palate are characteristic of Stags’ Leap Chardonnay. The mid-palate is round with a creamy mouthfeel from aging on the lees and the finish has length that is complex yet crisp and balanced.
