2013 Stony Hill Chardonnay Magnum


This vintage is one of our favorites in recent yeaers, and the magnum format is a beautiful way to extend the wine's already age-worthy life. Here is how Virginie Boone, of the Wine Enthusiast Magazine, recently described the 2013: "Light, lithe and elusive, this wine begs for time in the glass to develop, and it changes as it goes, maintaining a persistence of exotic Asian spice and citrus, stony minerality and a dash of lemon peel. Green apple also shines through, the texture of the wine crisp yet complex. Drink now through 2023." We think Virginie captured the spirit of this wine perfectly.
