by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $17.94 (reg. $24.94)
Summer is tantalizingly close and for us that means the season for California Chardonnay. With the warmer weather rapidly approaching we think it's obligatory to have a case or three of great everyday Chardonnay on hand. What better way to prepare for summer than with a case of the 2014 Stemmler Chardonnay for 40% off and the absolute lowest price of any vintage on the market! The 2014 vintage was spectacular for Carneros, marked by “fresh, vibrant, sun-kissed flavors” (Wine Spectator) and all the beauty of California Chardonnay is on display in a quaffable, easy-going frame that anyone can get behind.
Carneros is Chardonnay heaven and this bottle is made with 100% estate grown grapes from the Lawler Vineyard. The warm Napa sunshine merges with the cool fog coming off San Pablo Bay, resulting in Chardonnay that is notoriously delicious and balanced. This is the only AVA to cross both Sonoma and Napa counties, and it’s fitting as stylistically you really get the best of both worlds here. Robert Stemmler was an early advocate of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Golden State. Starting his career off in Germany, he eventually moved to California to work with Mondavi and later the historic Simi Winery.
This is a terrific Chardonnay at a price that won't break the bank. Grab a case and enjoy!
