Smith-Madrone Chardonnay 2015, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District, California

Founded in 1971 with the purchase of 200 forested acres at the top of Spring Mountain, Smith-Madrone is run by brothers Stuart and Charles Smith. 32 acres of vineyards were reclaimed (originally planted in the 1880’s) from the encroaching forest of Madrone Douglas fir and oak. From steep, dry-farmed vineyards, the vines flourish in vividly red and rocky volcanic soil. The cooler mountain temperature produces wine of intense flavor, structure and longevity. 2014 vintage – 100% Chardonnay, 100% barrel fermented, 100% new French oak for 9 months. 850 Cases Made
