Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

Yellow-gold. Sexy, expansive aromas of fresh pit fruits, mace, clove and flowers, with a honeyed undertone. Rich, supple and dense, with exotic, almost liqueur-like suggestions of yellow plum and pineapple. The finish clings with real authority, echoing the honey and spice notes. A powerful but surprisingly energetic chardonnay that has the concentration to age but offers a lot of appeal already..

About This Producer


Mount Eden Vineyards is a small historic wine estate located on a 2000-foot peak in the Santa Cruz Mountain Appellation about 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Founded in 1945, it focuses on small lots of estate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted in austere, infertile Franciscan shale on a cool, exposed mountaintop, the low-yielding estate vineyards have produced world class wines for over a half century.

Since 1981 Jeffrey Patterson has guided the winemaking and grape growing at Mount Eden. His emphasis is on wine growing rather than winemaking, and an obsession with gentleness and naturalness in the handling of the grapes and wines is his ongoing passion.
