"Seamless profile of orange and lemon blossom enhanced by layers
of spicy butterscotch and pineapple. The finish is rich and long
showing tremendous purity."
– Graham Weerts, Winemaker
"Serious Chardonnays are being produced by new winemaker, Graham Weerts, at Jess Jackson's Alexander Valley estate, Stonestreet. The 2005 Chardonnay Upper Barn, a vineyard made famous by Helen Turley in the 1990s, exhibits more brioche, white peach, apricot, and poached pear characteristics along with good underlying acidity (typical of this Chardonnay vintage)."
