I need to start by saying that we were just informed prices will be going up on these wines by quite a bit from now on. This is your last chance to get these iconic wines at these values. Since 1952, Stony Hill has been the counterpoint to the conventional Napa Chardonnay style. They’ve been the counterpoint to the conventional Napa winery as well, producing only white wine from 1952-2003!!! They are the oldest continuously operating winery in the Spring Mountain District. Its Chardonnay channels the magic of Grand Cru Chablis with American ingenuity and Napa sunshine. Since the beginning and still today, the wine is no new oak, no malolactic fermentation, the literal antithesis of 95% of Chardonnay made in California. Napa’s greatest Chardonnay producers all did a stint here (Ric Forman, John Kongsgaard). To those that taste these wines young, they can seem classic, but restrained. They demonstrate the classic orchard fruits, mushroom, and stony minerality of well-tended Chardonnay from a great site, but they are shy wines. After five to ten years is when they show their magic as they blossom into umami potions of honeyed fruits and toasted hazelnuts. These would have disappeared into the cellars of the best restaurants in town had the events of the last year not transpired. Enjoy!
