Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Ultimate Beverage Collection, FinalistTried & True Award) Pale straw tone with flecks of gold-green. Heady oak character comes through on the nose. Palate is opulent and plush. Balanced citrus acidity balances the rich character of this wine. The finish lingers long after the last mouthful. (Jul 2015)
Aromas of citrus and stone fruit are balanced by a hint of brown butter. Flavors of white peach, toasted hazelnuts and butterscotch intermingle perfectly on the palate. This Chardonnay is a rich medium-bodied wine with balanced acidity and a long finish.
|Located on the grounds of a historic equestrian center, Black Stallion Winery is the latest addition to the distinguished collection of wineries in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Each of the varietals we produce is handcrafted and carefully blended from small vineyard lots. Each lot is fermented and aged separately in our cellar until just prior to bottling when we carefully blend these lots together to achieve wines of balance with layers of complex flavors. Black Stallion Winery is dedicated to crafting high quality wines that are elegant and distinctive yet approachable.
|The 2013 Chardonnay is a rich wine that would pair well with chicken with a lemon cream sauce or linguine with white clam sauce.
