Tasting Notes

Release Date: Spring 2020

2017 was a beautiful vintage across all of our wines, Chardonnay included. A long growing season due to mild temperatures in the summer gave the wine full maturity and complexity.

Barrel-fermented in our mountain cave, the composition of this wine is 64% Domaine Eden fruit and 36% Mount Eden Estate fruit. A departure from earlier vintages where Mount Eden fruit was the majority, this shift has created a more approachable Chardonnay with aromas of honeysuckle blossom, gunflint and lemon zest dance on the nose. On the palate, impressions of lemon custard and loamy earth are pervasive on the long finish.

Expect further development in the bottle for another ten years.
