Stonier Reserve Chardonnay

This is a Stonier Reserve of considerable proportions, clocking in at no less than 14.5% alcohol, yet it manages to uphold a focus of lifted fruit purity and balanced acid tension that carries it long and clean through the finish. Fruit and oak step up to meet its dimensions, thanks to impressive concentration and purity of white peach, grapefruit and lemon, with layered support from cashew nut French oak. $36 at Discount Wines.
