Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Chardonnay | All Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

From the Producer

At once delicate and powerful, the 2016 Staglin Chardonnay opens to reveal a citrus complex of Buddha’s hand, galangal and kaffir lime leaf underlain by cut melon, firm stone fruits and fissured granite with flecks of damp limestone and subtle hints of spice. Like 300 thread-count Pima cotton sheets, this precise wine is cool, crisp and smooth with a lithe and engaging texture that just glides seamlessly from beginning to end.

Critical Acclaim

SP91 Wine Spectator Jun 15, 2018

"Big and rich, offering a juicy mix of apple, pear and salted almond flavors that are open-textured and spicy. Buttery notes emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 800 cases made." (91 pts.)

VN95 Vinous Mar 2018

"Staglin’s 2016 Chardonnay is absolutely gorgeous. Fermentation and aging in barrel yields a wine of notable distinction and class. Lemon confit, white flowers, apricot, mint and tangerine are all nicely pushed forward in this succulent, super-expressive Chardonnay. Winemaker Fredrik Johansson has done a brilliant job with the 2016. Don’t miss it." (95 pts.)

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2017

"The 2016 Chardonnay has a wonderfully expressive tropical fruit nose, offering notes of pineapple, green mango and fresh grapefruit plus hints of honeyed toast, orange blossoms and nutmeg. Medium-bodied, soft, refreshing and approachable at this youthful stage, it has a lovely spiciness contributing to the depth on the finish." (90 pts.)

Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
