User Reviews for Domaine Eden Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

Looking back on 2009 we were blessed with a more rain than the previous two years. We dry farm and rely on rainfall exclusively to provide enough water for our vineyard. A deep winter freeze set up the vines for their much needed dormant period and the colder it is, the deeper they sleep. Harvest time was normal (for a change) with September’s warmth driving the fruit to ripen. The all-important acidities remained high, allowing us to make our signature old-world style. The blend this year was 60% from Mount Eden’s estate vines and 40% from Domaine Eden. The grapes were picked by hand and crushed within three hours of harvest, barrel-fermented in Burgundy barrels and aged on the lees for ten months. This wine is icy clean, vibrant and mineral in style with flavors of citrus zest, quince and spring flowers. For lovers of precision and delicacy in the expression of Chardonnay, this is it. It should age beautifully for 7-10 years.
