Stubbs Chardonnay Reviews

Score: 93 | July 27, 2017 | Wine Anorak

There’s a freshness to this wine. It’s supple and fine grained with pear and citrus fruit, showing good balance. Refined and fruit-driven with good acidity.

Cellar Selection

This fascinating and extremely appetizing wine is very dry, almost steely, with aromas like cinnamon and lime. These are followed by bracing and bone-dry flavors like lemon and Bosc pear with a touch of tannin in the texture, which is unusual for a white wine. Cellar for the mid-term and drink after 2018.

The delicious 2013 Chardonnay Stubbs Vineyard from the Petaluma Gap in – of all places – the high-priced real estate county of Marin, shows wonderful honeysuckle and white peach. The wine is 100% barrel fermented, with 100% malolactic fermentation, and was aged on its lees for nine months. It has a slight greenish hue to its light-straw color, medium to full body, and beautiful fruit.

Brisk acidity is the best feature of this wine. it reflects the long hangtime of the cool vintage. Lots of new French oak brings vanilla and buttered toast to the equation, but it's in keeping with the power of the underlying pineapple and lemon jam, pear and honey flavors. A decadent, flashy Chardonnay for drinking now with rich dishes, such as lobster and scallops -S.H.
