Mount Eden's Edna Valley Chardonnay is one of our best value Chardonnay discoveries - get it before this vintage sells out!
91 Points Jeb Dunnuck:"The Chardonnay Edna Valley is also terrific, with a slightly more layered, textured style and less minerality than the Santa Cruz Chardonnay. Ripe orchard fruits, some tropical notes, background oak, and a medium-bodied, rich, balanced texture all make for a terrific cool climate Chardonnay to drink over the coming 7-8 years."
Antonio Galloni (Vinous):"The Chardonnay (Edna Valley) is soft, pliant and super-expressive. Apricot, chamomile, hazelnut, vanillin and lightly buttered notes softly contoured in this supple, open-knit Chardonnay. At $23 a bottle, the Edna Valley Chardonnay is a terrific value. It's hard to argue with quality at this price. Drink it over the next few years."
For those wine drinkers who gravitate toward moderate alcohol, trim, focused, earth-driven flavors and brightness in the finish, this is your kind of wine and it has been awarded one of the "Year's 100 Best Buys" by Wine and Spirits Magazine. Jean-Pierre Wolff farms 55 acres of Chardonnay vines in the bucolic Edna Valley, outside the town of San Luis Obispo. Originally planted in 1976 by Edna Valley wine pioneer Andy Macgregor (Wolff purchased the property from Macgregor in 1999), the vineyard is the oldest in the Edna Valley. We have made Chardonnay from these vines since 1985. These mature vines typically yield two to four tons per acre
