Huge score and a low price

An amazing 95 Point Chardonnay with a couple of years of bottle age. While we are just starting to see some 2015 Chardonnay hit the shelves sometimes it is nice to take a step back and drink a great bottle of Chardonnay that is starting to reach maturity.

We bought a special deal - check it out!

2011 Stonestreet Chardonnay Upper Barn On-Sale $29.99
Lowest Price on Wine-Searcher $50.09
Suggested retail is $75
Full bright yellow. Ripe, deep aromas of lemon peel, tangerine, beeswax, crushed rock and dusty herbs, with hints of honey and tropical fruits. Large-scaled, rich and tactile, with nearly viscous flavors of lemon, white peach and butterscotch. Really compelling, ripe, vibrant fruit here, and wonderfully broad and dry. Very complex and sexy wine, a brilliant rendition of this outstanding chardonnay vineyard."
