Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Karia 750ml

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Karia 750ml 15240

$67.99 price per bottle

The name KARIA (kar’-ee-ah) is derived from a Greek word meaning graceful, and it is this very character that we seek most in this wine. With stylistic inspiration coming specifically from our ARCADIA VINEYARD Chardonnay, the wine is refreshing, light and graceful on the palate, with bright acidity supporting ripe fruit flavors and a butterfly kiss of oak. We source the fruit for this wine in the cooler climate regions of the Napa Valley, with over 40% of the blend coming from our estate vineyards. ARCADIA VINEYARD, at the foot of Mt. George, provides a framework of invigorating acidity as well as beautiful floral notes. B. R. V. , our vineyard in the Oak Knoll District, contributes sweet, juicy apple and pear characters. We complement the fruit from these vineyards with grapes from select vineyards in Carneros that enhance the blend with citrus notes and a minerality that region is known for. In the cellar, oak and malolactic fermentation are used with a light touch. It’s a terroir-driven approach that is built on the belief that winemaking techniques should contribute accent notes and not make the dominant statement.
