The 2015 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard opens with wonderfully seductive tropical fruit notes of fresh pineapple, green guava and passion fruit with compelling sparks of lemon zest, wet pebbles, baking bread and cashew pieces plus a touch of fresh ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with exotic fruits and zesty nuances with a decadent oiliness to the texture plus a racy line to deliver a very long, invigorating finish. (LPB)
Both ripe and wonderfully lively with an inviting, nicely composed, many-layered nose of fresh apples and minerals carefully infused with toast and creamy oak, the Stone Flat Chardonnay likewise exhibits fine fruity depth and exceptional integration of its many parts on the palate. It is full and a touch oily in feel to start and firms without stiffening as it crosses the palate, and, while a very rich wine, it is governed by the very clear presence of juicy fruit from beginning to end. Its seamless construction makes it fairly easy to like at the moment, but while offering near-term pleasures aplently, it will age famously by virtue of its exemplary balance and by no means demands hasty drinking.
The 2015 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard is marked by expressive citrus and floral notes, with a bit more lift, translucence and brighter acids than the Durrell, which lies a few feet away and is planted with the same clonal material, but on different rootstock. Even with all of the natural richness of the year, the Stone Flat is quite gracious and delicate. Bright, saline notes extend the finish nicely. (AG)
