A brilliant release for this iconic Napa Chardonnay. Vinified and aged in neutral oak barrels. Such rich layers of fruit, minerality, and vibrant structure. This has the body and structure to go many years, potentially decades like many previous Stony Hill Chardonnays. Alcohol is 13%.

"I tasted this wine a year ago out of barrel and thought that it had outstanding potential. Now that the wine is in bottle one can easily see that this is destined to be a superb vintage for the Stony Hill Chard. The nose is deep, classy and vibrant, as it offers up scents of lime blossoms, pink grapefruit, pear, stony soil tones and a bit of orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, long and pure, with fine midpalate depth, lovely, bright acids and impressive length and grip on the zesty finish. The combination of very pure and generous fruit on the attack and an absolutely rapier-like finish strongly suggests that this will be a reference point Stony Hill in about twenty years time, and this should prove to be an absolutely classic vintage for this long-lived Chardonnay. 2013-2030." 94+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar

"Wow, that's a mouthful! A couple more years and it will be a big, rich wine. This wine is still a baby." Mike Chelini, winemaker
