Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

When we produced our first steel Chardonnay, we had no idea it would eventually become one of our most popular wines. From day one, the secret to our success has been the high quality of fruit from our estate Rancho Santa Rosa and Rancho Las Hermanas vineyards. This 2011 is both lively and concentrated, a rare vinous feat. The aromatics combine kiwi, mandarin zest and honeycomb. The palate is crisp and minerally with notes of lemons and green apples.

As with its predecessors, this Stainless Steel Chardonnay is perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to grilled chicken or fresh fish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is cool, intense, acid-driven chardonnay. Unimpeded by oak or malolactic fermentation, the fruit has the tangy cut of a pineapple on the edge of ripeness, while still holding plenty of concentration thanks to the notably long hangtime of 2011. The saline minerality of Lincourt’s two wind-battered Santa Rita Hills vineyards is on full display, and it’s also a steal – an honest, terroir-driven wine for under $20. Buy a case and drink it over the next several years with seafood."

Wonderful non--oaked Chardonay

I received the 2010 as a vintage substition in place of the 2011 I ordered. The 2010 is not labelled Steel, but simply Unoaked. I guess I can't complain about the vintage substitution, because I purchased at a priced below which one cannot refuse a vintage substitution. However, one doesn't expect to receive an earlier vintage (2010) as a substitution for a later vintage (2011), especially with a white wine since the earlier vintage of an early drinking white might already be over the hill. Indeed, the 2010 was almost over the hill, so be careful ordering this wine if it is price below the vintage substitution price. The 2010 was mediocre--probably past its drinking window.
