2020 Kristi Chardonnay
This is our second vintage of our Kristi Chardonnay. Like the 2019 it is named for our beloved Kristi Huber. This vintage is number ten in the history of chardonnay produced from Estate fruit. Like in 2019 we crafted three different styles of chardonnay: a reserve in oak, a stainless Chablis style, and this beautiful style. The 2020 Kristi was fermented in French oak barrels resulting in a wine that is light, fruity and soft. Due to the time on the lees, we have a lovely creamy texture and slight nuttiness. This is a Chardonnay much like you would find in Southern Burgundy: rich and oaky with a lovely liveliness! This wine is versatile when it comes to food. It pairs well with anything buttery: sole meunière, a buttery roast chicken, sauces like hollandaise or béarnaise, and shrimp scampi. It is also great with butternut squash and pumpkin, creamy pasta, and a variety of cheeses. At Stone Tower we now have approximately 13 acres across the diverse micro-climates and soils of our property’s southeastern exposure.
