Aromas including lemons, white peach and hazelnut are supported by hints of wheatmeal and French oak. The palate is a powerful expression of ripe Chardonnay – citrus and figs – balanced with creamy mid-palate complexity, and typically fine acid structure.
"A top-notch effort, Stonier’s Reserve Chardonnay boasts layers of richly textured fruit and oak hung on a frame of citrusy acidity. Scents of baked apple and toasted nuts are balanced by lemon custard, while the toasted hazelnut and grilled peach flavors feel round in the mouth. Drink now-2010." 91 points - Wine Enthusiast, August 1, 2007"This succulent chardonnay holds its alcohol well, in the style of a fine white Rhone. It's more savory than fruity, with almond and floral notes. White peach flavors come up with air, with the structural lift to match blanquette de veau." 91 Points - Wine & Spirits, June 2007
