Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Karia 2010 750ml

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Karia

This crisp and fresh Chardonnay opens with aromas of orange blossom, lemon oil and toasted brioche with sweet cream apple butter. The palate is loaded with flavors of ripe stone fruit and apple blossom that lead to a persistent citrus and spice infused finish.

We source the fruit for this wine in the cooler climate regions of the Napa Valley, with over 40% of the blend coming from our estate vineyards. ARCADIA VINEYARD, at the foot of Mt. George, provides a framework of invigorating acidity as well as beautiful floral notes. B.R.V., our vineyard in the Oak Knoll District, contributes sweet, juicy apple and pear characters. We complement the fruit from these vineyards with grapes from select vineyards in Carneros that enhance the blend with citrus notes and a minerality that region is known for. In the cellar, oak and malolactic fermentation are used with a light touch. It’s a terroir–driven approach that is built on the belief that winemaking techniques should contribute accent notes and not make the dominant statement.
