WineDiva's Review

Profound, outstanding, harmonious.
Falling under the umbrella of Jackson Family Wines, this outstanding Chardonnay comes from Stonestreet's best estate vineyard sites (between 400-1800ft) on the North Coast of Sonoma in the AVA of Alexander Valley. Resting alongside the Mayacamas Mountains, the estate, which was established in the late 80s, specializes in Cabernet and Chardonnay.
100% barrel fermented with native yeasts, this 2016 vintage continued through maloloactic ferment in barrel with monthly lees stirring and was aged 10 months in French oak, 63% new.
Fleshy aromas of hazelnuts and browned butter, grilled lemons, honeysuckle, orange zest, yellow apples, vanilla and spice lead to a creamy, concentrated and stylish palate. Nutty and golden with a slick texture and harmonious character, it's a fresh but profound wine.
