Food Pairings for Mount Eden Vineyards Chardonnay Edna Valley Macgregor Vineyard
Tasting notes at release: 1996, our twelfth year from this vineyard, is a classic in the style of our Chardonnay. Mount Eden has always emphasized complexity over simple fruitiness. For this to succeed, however, we need a vintage that is high in fruit character to begin with. The 1996 vintage was such a year. Vineyard specific grapefruit, guava and mint flavors are enlivened by toast from barrel fermentation and roasted grains from "sur lies" aging in our mountain cave. Hands off wine making is evident in the long reflective finish.
