2013 2013 Smith Madrone Spring Mountain Chardonnay
A Spring Mountain Chardonnay for only $32?!? These 1990s-era prices from Smith Madrone are a big reason why it has become one of our favorite wineries in Napa Valley. In a time where wineries are constantly increasing prices, Smith Madrone simply refuses to do so despite having some of the most prime real estate atop Spring Mountain.
FROM THE WINERY
Smith Madrone has only 10.25 acres of Chardonnay on Spring Mountain. Those grapes make up 100% of the 2013 Smith Madrone Chardonnay. The vines are dry farmed atop Spring Mountain, and the average age of the Chardonnay vines is 41 years (!!).
