Another fabulous Gravel Bench Vineyard Chardonnay from Stonestreet. It's hard to pick a favorite from among their wonderful single vineyards, but this one has to come close. More fruit driven than some other Gravel Bench wines I remember, though the mineral component is strong, especially in the finish. Complex nose and flavors suggest honeyed citrus, stone fruits, yeast, nutmeg, white flowers. Impeccably balanced and fresh and lively in the mouth, this lovely wine seems like it should drink well for some years. As I note every year when I drink this, it's hard to believe it's aged in 100% new oak since the oak is so nicely integrated.. - HK 2021-06-20
