Winemaker's Notes

The style of this vintage is what I have been trying to achieve recently. Reticent in fruit yet buoyant in personality, this chardonnay has penetrating, compelling aromas unique to Mount Eden of earth, quince, and lime zest. On the palate, the first impression is of solid acidity with the fruit in the background but abundant richness, texture and minerality in the foreground. Overall, an exquisite, teasing tautness completes the picture. Built to age gracefully, expect improvement through 2012 and a drinking plateau through 2025 with proper cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright gold. Lively, mineral-laced aromas of pear, quince and white flowers, with subtle vanilla and spice notes in the background. Sappy and light on its feet, with surprisingly dense orchard fruit flavors and an exotic hint of papaya. The mineral quality comes back on a pure, nervy and tightly focused finish, which is impressively persistent. Balanced for aging but this will probably be in top drinking form in another four or five years."
