Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2012 Stiling Chardonnay has beautiful floral and Muscat aromas with a hint of flint and stone. Its elegant balance of floral, Muscat, apple and Meyer lemon are wrapped in toasty French oak. A vibrant acidity wets the appetite but this combination of flavor and acidity makes this wine the perfect match with food.
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.
