2009 Karia Chardonnay

Chardonnay-California-Napa Valley

The name Karia is derived from a word meaning graceful and it is the very character that we seek most in this wine. Crafted in large part with grapes from our estate vineyards, the wine is refreshing, light and graceful on the palate, with bright acidity supporting rich fruit flavors and a mere butterfly kiss of oak. California.


Alcohol Content:13.00%

The highest-scoring Chardonnay in this week's lineup is the Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Karia bottling. Karia means graceful in Greek, and this wine certainly delivers finesse and grace. Combines subtlety and finesse, with smooth ripe pear, melon, ginger, spice and hazelnut flavors that are rich and full-bodied without being heavy. Ends with a long, graceful finish.

There are 25,000 cases of the 2009 Chardonnay Karia. Part of this cuvèe is put through malolactic and about one-third is aged in stainless steel and two-thirds in wood. This light straw-colored Chardonnay is a Napa Valley regional blend as opposed to an estate Chardonnay. It offers up aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle and lemon oil in its medium-bodied, crisp, fresh style. Enjoy it over the next 2 - 3 years.
