2011 three Chardonnay Stanly Ranch Napa Valley
The Stanly Ranch Vineyard at the southern end of the Napa Valley is located just a half-mile from the San Pablo Bay in the prestigious Carneros appellation.
The wine exhibits plenty of green apples and fresh melon characteristics along with a slight hint of oak in the palate. There is more minerality and elegance in this wine due to the half barrel and half stainless steel fermentation process. Twenty five percent Malolactic fermentation added roundness to the mouth feel and a little extra complexity to the flavors.
