Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stags' Leap Winery|
The 2018 Chardonnay comes strolling out of the glass with nonchalant notions of Golden Delicious apples, green guava and ripe peaches plus hints of paraffin wax, baking bread, marzipan and cedar. Medium-bodied, the palate has great intensity and purity with a satiny texture and zippy backbone, finishing long with loads of brightness. 39,000 cases were made.
The 2018 Chardonnay is also rock-solid, with a fresh, pretty style in its melon, peach, and pineapple fruits as well as a subtle honeyed flower character. It's medium-bodied, nicely textured, and a good white.
