Villa Mt. Eden Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2001
Lemon meringue, pear and roasted grain aromas lead to mouthfilling flavors of ripe fruit and caramel butterscotch notes. The creamy texture on the palate is supported by a crisp, refreshing mango-citrus character. This is a rich and lively Chardonnay that leaves a lingering impression. -Mike McGrath, Winemaker
"A tremendous value. Complex, with intense spice, pear, citrus, baked apple and hazelnut flavors that are both concentrated and elegantly styled, finish with a pretty burst of fruit."
Under former winemaker, Mike McGrath’s, 25 years of leadership, Villa Mt. Eden earned five placements on Wine Spectator’s annual “Top 100” and many best value accolades. Villa Mt. Eden also moved production facilities up the road on the Silverado Trail. In 2009 McGrath’s longtime assistant winemaker Armando de Santiago took the helm as winemaker at Villa Mt. Eden, placing renewed focus on Villa’s enduring mission to showcase distinguished regions and vineyards of California. With his unique background in philosophy and naturopathy, as well as winemaking, Armando is in many ways a natural fit for Villa Mt. Eden. This modern day Renaissance man’s passion for crafting elegant wines with fruit intensity and a focus on place, is ideally suited to guiding this acclaimed winery into its next chapter.
