Stonestreet Bear Point Chardonnay 2011
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
Wine AdvocateOrange blossoms, nectarines, white flowers and honey all flesh out in the 2011 Chardonnay Bear Point. Another wine that manages to be both rich but not ponderous, the 2011 Bear Point blossoms in all directions as the fruit opens up in the glass. A creamy, highly expressive finish rounds things out in style. The Bear Point is made from the "Peter Michael" Chardonnay clone, which is believed to have originated on this property! Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.
Wine EnthusiastThe minerality in this wine is showcased through notes of granite that give a firm kick to the ripe apricots, citrus, tropical fruit and honeysuckle that make it so gorgeous. Drink now with fare such as lobster, tuna or scallops.
