Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013
|Brand||Stags' Leap Winery|
Wine AdvocateThe estate's biggest production cuvée is the 2013 Chardonnay Stags Leap District (25,000 cases produced). A very good value in Chardonnay, it sees no malolactic, is fermented and aged in a combination of 25% stainless steel, 25% new oak and 50% neutral wood, and represents a good California impersonation of a premier cru French Chablis. Notes of white corn, quince, pear and apple blossoms emerge from this medium-bodied, zesty, elegant 2013. Enjoy it over the next several years.
