Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Stiling Vineyard Chardonnay opens with aromas of pear, oak and stone. On the palate, flavors of Muscat, ripe apple and kiwi emerge, as underlying nuances of flint and stone build on the midpalate. There is a suppleness to the mouthfeel, and vanilla from the oak lingers on the finish. This wine is delightfully balanced and opens up beautifully with a swirl of the glass.
Vineyard Notes
Stiling Vineyard, located in the Green Valley Appellation of the Russian River Valley, was planted by the Stiling family in 1988. The vineyard is composed of the infamous Goldridge sandy loam soils which produce vines of moderate vigor. We source our fruit from two different blocks and two different clones - the See clone and the Rued clone. These clones each offer a unique flavor to the Stiling wine. The coastal influence produces daytime temperatures that allow the grapes to slowly develop full ripeness while retaining perfect balance. Nickel & Nickel produces Chardonnay from 10.5-acres within the 35-acre vineyard.
