Mount Eden Vineyards Chardonnay Edna Valley Wolff Vineyard 2005
This is our twenty-first vintage from this vineyard, the oldest producing in the Edna Valley. 2005 was a typically cool season for this site with harvest commencing on October 7th. The Edna Valley appellation as a whole, and especially this vineyard, is the last to harvest Chardonnay in the state. Aged nine months in barrel and an additional fourteen months in bottle, this 2005 is fully developed. Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle and mint lead to a deep complex yet elegant fruit-driven flavors across the palate. Vineyard specific earth and lime nuances rise in the aftertaste.
Mount Eden - Wolff has become one of my favorite inexpensive chardonnays over the past few years. It is a nicely balance wine that is neither over-oaked or too buttery. It is relatively complex with nice fruit flavors and enough acidity to stand up to foods such as chicken or pork. Overall, a very nice wine -- especially for less than $20.
