From our flagship vineyard, this Chardonnay is rich with flavor and has a long, lush finish. Hazelnuts and
white flowers lead to pure pear and apple fruit, with touches of mineral, honey and vanilla. Aged for 10
months in 30% new French oak, 189 cases produced.
The 2018 Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of two clones of Chardonnay from our estate vineyard. Clone 4 tends to be ripe and rich, with tropical fruit
characteristics. The Mount Eden Clone expresses more minerality and vibrant acidity. Each barrel is carefully tasted and rated, and only the very best barrels make the Reserve blend. Pleasant aromas of butterscotch and caramel dominate the nose, with hints of citrus and stone fruits underneath. Lime zest, green apple, and various tropical fruit notes are present on the palate. A healthy, but not overpowering dose of French oak adds sweetness and weight to the wine. This Chardonnay has a rich creamy texture and balanced acidity, making for a long lingering finish. Pair this Chardonnay with creamy cheeses, fish and chicken entrees.
Pale golden color. Beautiful yet delicate aromatics of
crushed flowers mingled with lemon meringue
and marzapan, hints of butter. Purity and power on
the palate. Good acidity propels the fruit and
tannins across the palate. This is a wine with some
density and texture to it, but without any excess fat
or weight you might get from higher ripeness or
A pale-yellow straw color in your glass gives way to a nose of bright stone fruits, citrus, and honeysuckle. Crisp on the palate, you find white peaches, a drop of honey, and some lemon zest before a wonderfully sunny finish.
Exquisite aromas of bold citrus notes, subtle tropical notes, and a toasty nuttiness. On the palate you will experience heavenly citrus notes of Meyer lemon oil, Kafir lime leaf, and quince balanced on accents of pineapple, and papaya with a toasty kiss on the finish.
