Food Pairings for Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Bottled Chardonnay
Tasting Notes at Release (March 1997): In 1995 a little rain in the spring reduced our already minuscule Chardonnay crop by 40%. A cool summer ensued, ripening the grapes fully by October and yielding beautiful grapes packed full of precious acidity. Very youthful and energetic, the intriguing lemon, apple, hazelnut, and anise flavors are persistent as they are intense. Fermented and aged in new barrels from Burgundy, this wine was aged on the yeast sediment for 10 months. A light filtration was performed before bottling. Expect development in the bottle for another two to four years and a long plateau of fine drinking thereafter.
