Stonegate Napa Valley Chardonnay 2010
Chardonnay from Napa Valley, California
100% Chardonnay from Rutherford in Napa Valley. Barrel fermented in French oak. Ripe apple and melon with butterscotch and light toast aromas compliment rich mouth filling pear and caramel flavors.
Wine Enthusiast - "Good price for a Napa Chardonnay this rich and balanced. It's enormously ripe in pineapples, oranges and golden mangoes, but grounded by zesty acidity and a minerality that comes from the soil. Editors' Choice"
The mid-1970s saw a boom of determined winemaking families staking new ground in the Napa Valley and making wines of great distinction. From that era, Stonegate became synonymous with universally heralded Napa Valley Cabernet and Chardonnay.
A partnership of wine pros with a rich history of viticulture, a deep knowledge of microclimates, optimal winemaking, and an effective sales team strengthen the Stonegate legacy as a brand indistinguishable from the fine reputation of Napa Valley wines. View all Stonegate Winery Wines

Notable FactsWithin the Napa Valley lie smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two is St.-Helena and finally, just grated an AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap and Mount Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
