Food Pairings for Mount Eden Vineyards Chardonnay Edna Valley Macgregor Vineyard
The wine-growing gods blessed this cool valley in 2000 with a bountiful and early harvest. What a contrast to 1999, when we were still crushing at Halloween. During the sixteen years we have been making this wine we've noticed that years like 2000 yield big generous flavors and texture. Such is the case here. 2000 is a huge success with a delicious accessibility not often seen at this early stage. The vines, planted in 1975, are approaching that old-vine mystique so more of the site specific "terroir" is emerging. Enticing mint, lemon, and honey suckle flavors are spiced with creamy oak and nuanced with a touch of earthiness. This wine, rich and full across the palate, holds its essential acidity in the background. Hedonistic.
