Description

One of the most historically important Chardonnay vineyards in California, the Upper Barn Chardonnay expresses both power and grace. Situated at 1,800' in elevation, this site combines richness of fruit due to its exposure to sunshine, as well as power and tension from cool ocean breezes and its varied, rocky soils. Round, mouthwatering flavors of yellow nectarine, Meyer lemon, orange blossom and savory herbs.

About Stonestreet

Stonestreet was established in 1995 with the vision to defy the limits of California winegrowing. With a focus on mountain viticulture and ageworthy expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, Winemaker Graham Weerts brings global expertise and more than two decades of experience to Stonestreet’s high elevation vineyards. Climbing into the Mayacamas mountains in Sonoma County, the estate vineyards rise 2,400 ft. above the Alexander Valley floor, yielding wines of tension and power, and reflecting the extreme landscape of the mountain.
