About Our Ratings

Stonestreet 2012 Chardonnay, Upper Barn, Alexander Valley
Stonestreet wines are all grown on the Jackson Family's Alexander Mountain Estate; 235 individual vineyard blocks on the western ridge of the Mayacamas Mountain range towering over the Alexander Valley below. High elevations, volcanically derived soils and cooling maritime breezes make it a very unique location and one where mountain grape growing reaches a pinnacle. Most of their wines are single vineyard releases that critics go wild over. Robert Parker recently wrote "Stonestreet’s wines continue to go from strength to strength under the direction of South African winemaker Graham Weerts. The Chardonnays are spectacular.” This 2012 from the famed Upper Barn vineyard block was barrel fermented with native yeasts and aged 10 months in 50% new French oak. Less than 700 cases were made. Parker scored this 97 points saying "One of my favorites is the 2012 Chardonnay Upper Barn, which boasts remarkable intensity as well as lots of tropical fruit, a stony-like minerality, and a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel. This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay. It should drink well for 5-6 years." Extremely Limited!
