2012 Stony Hill Chardonnay Napa image

Small family owned winery they bought the property in 1943, all Spring Mountain fruit, they have 40 planted acres of vineyards and the first vintage was 1952. They have not changed their production style Mike Chelini has been there since the 1970's making him the longest tenured winemaker in Napa Valley- I had thought this was Tom Mackey at Freemark Abbey. A very lean, non-malo neutral oak the barrels are 10-40 years old. Crisp lemon citrus with a good hand of that stony mineral nuance that defines this wine, a very long lived style that grows up slowly only 4000 cases produced here and over 1/2 of it is Chardonnay. A very crisp and racy style with green apple and lemon citrus fruit on the tongue with a firm hand of acidity, tongue tingly mineral notes, maybe more reminiscent of a SB than a Chardonnay. Finish 45+ Excellent +
