Stonestreet Upper Barn Chardonnay Alexander Mountain Estate 2014

Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesAnother compelling effort from Stonestreet winemaker Lisa Valtenbergs. There is impressive restraint here, allowing the mineral, wet stone notes to carry the creamy, lees-laden mid-palate before the citrus fruit, orange and barrel toast. The Hyde Wente clone planted over multiple years since 1982 at 1600 feet is behind this pinnacle chardonnay at Stonestreet. Fresh halibut would be a great match here. Again, impressive New World chardonnay.Tasted: 09 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 110.00 speculative listing - Summit Fine Wines AB 110.00 private wine shops ON 115.00 consignment - Producer: Stonestreet WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
