Mount Eden Chardonnay Wolff Edna Valley 2006
The 2006 Mount Eden Wolff Vineyard Edna Valley Chardonnay was aged sur lie for eight months in one to five year old French oak barrels. The resulting wine is rich and clean with tons of tropical fruit on the nose and a youthful exuberance. On the palate it shows racy mint and citrus zest flavors with excellent acidity attributable to its coastal origins.
External Reviews for Mount Eden Chardonnay Wolff Edna Valley
Smooth, rich and creamy-textured, this is intense and concentrated, with a mix of ripe pear, green apple, floral and spice notes. Ends with a fresh, snappy aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.
Bright and pure, with high natural acidity framing ripe flavors of peaches, pineapples, limes, kiwi fruits and smoky, oaky vanilla. Classic Edna Valley Chardonnay.
Pale yellow. Musky, powerfully scented aromas of orchard fruits, smoky lees, truffle and iodine; smells like a top-notch Chassagne. Weighty and round but sharply focused, offering fresh pear, peach, tangerine and buttered toast flavors. The iodine element returns on the long, smoky finish. Lots going on here, especially for the price.
Brisk and ripe, this Chard, from a cool region on San Luis Obispo, shows a classic profile of pure kiwi and lime fruit flavor. A layer of oak adds caramel, butterscotch and vanilla flavors. It all finishes in a long, spicy swirl of orange blossom honey.
Ripe and intense, with rich, perfumed apple, pear and spice flavors that pick up a note of butterscotch from oak. Turns elegant and stylish on the finish, showing a hint of lemon and citrus. A great value. Drink now through 2010.
Fresh and vibrant, with floral apple blossom scents. Complex spicy mineral, green apple and green pear notes, with a hint of cedar, are clean and refreshing. Has good length, picking up a trace of anise on the finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
