Chardonnay
Spring Mountain District

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Our 2015 PNV Chardonnay is dry-farmed on northeast-facing slopes high on Spring Mountain
  • Reflects our tradition of letting the fruit from the vines and the minerality from the soils characterize the wine
  • 100% estate grown Chardonnay
  • A restrained wine with a crisp acidity, balancing the luscious Chardonnay fruit flavors

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Your Premiere Napa Valley Chardonnay beautifully reflects Stony Hill’s tradition of letting the fruit from the vines and the minerality from the soils characterize their wines. This 100% estate grown Chardonnay was dry-farmed on the northeast-facing slopes high on Spring Mountain. The quality of Stony Hill’s 2015 Chardonnay fruit was spectacular, resulting in a restrained wine with a crisp acidity, balancing the luscious Chardonnay fruit flavors, redolent of apple, pear and citrus, with a stony minerality. It has a bright acidity for structure and ageability, and a nice grip on the finish.

My commercial winemaking experience began at Sterling Vineyards working for Rick Forman in 1969. In 1971 I moved to Stony Hill Vineyard to become vineyard manager, and in 1973 I also assumed the role of assistant winemaker to Fred McCrea. When Fred died in 1977, I became the winemaker and vineyard manager, a position that I still hold today.
