Stony Hill Chardonnay 2012
This is the Chardonnay we strive for year after year. 2012 gave us an absolutely perfect growing season with no rain during May fruit set, consistent warm days with no hot spells through the summer and a dry, sunny harvest in September. The resulting wine is pale straw in color with bright, fresh aromas of pears and apples and a hint of lemon zest. In the mouth you’ll taste the flavors of pure Chardonnay fruit and a distinctive minerality coming from our stony vineyards. All in all, it’s a classically pure Chardonnay with a low alcohol level of 13%. We couldn’t be happier with the prospect of this fresh, fruity Chardonnay gradually mellowing into a richly integrated wine over the next five or more years.
