ACalifornian Chardonnay that Galloni calls "gorgeous" from the mountains above the prestigious Alexander Valley. Here cool elevation rather than fog keeps the ripening so long, while clear sunlight ensures fruit flavours are full and delicious. With a plush and creamy generosity but also real definition and nuance, the Stonestreet is a class act for any drinker. Stocks are limited.

Its Origins

Part of the Jackson Family portfolio, Stonestreet Estate Vineyards stands as one of the most extensive mountain estates in the world and is a testament to the quality of high-elevation winegrowing in California. Here one finds a collection of distinctive single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs — wines carved from an extreme landscape. Planted high atop Black Mountain, the vineyards are located in the eastern portion of the Alexander Valley AVA. Climbing from 400 to 2,400 feet above sea level, Stonestreet Estate is a patchwork of peaks, valleys and ridges defined by high elevations, volcanic soils and cool maritime breezes. From top to bottom, the property possesses more than 20 soil types and 20 temperature zones. To ensure the utmost quality and authenticity, the estate is divided into 235 separate vineyard blocks and sub-blocks. Each section has its own specific rootstocks, varieties, clones and viticultural protocols matched to the complexities of the terrain. From these divergent terroirs, winemaker Lisa Valtenbergs crafts site-specific single vineyard wines each harvest. Additionally, the Stonestreet portfolio showcases the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, the Estate Chardonnay and the Estate Sauvignon Blanc — a collection of expressive cuvees emanating from the most highly prized vineyard blocks on the mountain during a given vintage.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is a terrific introduction to the Stonestreet Chardonnays. Citrus, apricot, mint and a dash of new oak add nuance to this finely cut mountain Chardonnay. The Estate Chardonnay is another wine that delivers serious quality for the money. Silky and textured, the 2016 hits all the right notes. What a gorgeous wine it is." Drink 2019 - 2024

94/100 Wine Enthusiast (2015 vintage)

"This wine is a blend from several of the producer's higher-elevation estate vineyards in the appellation. Floral and inviting in sugar apple, caramel crème brûlée and complex spice and salt seasonings, it's plush and voluptuous, with supportive acidity and a crushed stone minerality."
