2011 Stags\' Leap Chardonnay Napa Valley

2011 Stags' Leap Chardonnay Napa Valley

This is a beautifully aromatic wine, with stone fruit flavors of fresh peaches and nectarines mingling with pineapple, a hint of mandarin orange and other citrus fruits. A classic example of cool climate Chardonnay, this is bright and crisp, but also features lightly toasted undertones that give it length and richness on the palate. With a round, floral finish, this is a refreshing wine that is deftly balanced, ready to enjoy now but with the acidic structure to be cellared for several years.

About This Wine
The fruit for our 2011 Napa Valley Chardonnay was picked by hand and brought quickly to the winery where it was gently whole cluster pressed. We fermented 25% of the wine in new French oak and 25% in stainless steel to preserve the fresh floral aromatics. The remaining 50% was fermented in seasoned oak barrels, preserving the essential purity of the fruit while adding subtle notes of oak complexity. This vintage did not undergo malolactic fermentation to protect its natural acidity and fresh flavors. The wine was bottled after six months of elevage (maturation) with a weekly batonnage, putting the yeast lees in suspension to release aromatics, increase the mouth feel and prevent reduction.
