Tasting Notes

Our 2009 vintage is a perfect example of the winemaker’s art. Mike Chelini has been crafting Chardonnay at Stony Hill for thirty-nine years, always bringing out the essential characteristics of our hillside grown grapes. The aromas of green apples and citrus that greet you are unmistakable. As the wine opens up, the fresh fruit on your tongue is joined by the flinty, earthy quality that the vines drink up from our stony soils and impart to the grapes themselves. As time goes by these flavors will meld and mellow into an elegant, integrated whole. The mouth feel is vibrant followed by a lingering fruit-filled aftertaste. Our 2009 Chardonnay will age naturally in the bottle over a period of ten or more years from a fresh, clean fruity wine to one of remarkable richness and depth.

TASTING NOTES

"Gleaming green-gold; just a lovely wine, with the best bits of youth and incipient maturity to its mix of honeysuckle and perfectly balanced citrussy acidity."

TASTING NOTES

A supple, attractive and very enjoyable white Burgundy. This is a relatively simple style but it still has a mineral backbone and plenty of acidity to balance the approachable sweet fruit. Not the most complicated 2009 in the range but wonderfully enjoyable right now. Delicious.
