This product is currently sold out.
Towering high above California’s Alexander Valley stands the Mayacamas Mountains, the rugged home to Alexander Mountain Estate and the wines of Stonestreet. It’s one of the most extensive mountain estates in the world where blocks of single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grow on volcanic soils. This vineyard produces the finest and most elegant flavoured fruit. Native yeasts are used and the wine is 100% barrel fermented and 43% is then aged in new French oak for 11 months. Tiny production, just 484 cases produced!
Stonestreet Upper Barn Chardonnay is an elevated, elegant mountain Chardonnay with an intense but very elegant nose of white peach and honeysuckle flowers backed with toasty brioche oak nuances. The palate has real presence without being overwhelming. Ripe stone fruit combine with savoury nuttiness and layers of toasty oak. The weight and texture is impressive and the wine is given real class and a real river rock quality from its elegant mountain fruit terroir. The finish is unbelievably long. A wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken, chicken in rich sauces, belly of pork, roast pork.
Grapes: Chardonnay 100%
Volume: 6 x 75cl
