Mount Eden Vineyards Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

$22.99

Mount Eden's Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay is one of our best value Chardonnay discoveries - get it before this vintage sells out! 92 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Mount Eden's 2014 Chardonnay Old Vines, from vineyards in Edna Valley, is pretty, understated and gracious. Pear, white flowers and sweet spices are all nicely delineated throughout in this super-attractive, mid-weight Chardonnay. Readers will have a hard time finding a better wine for the money. The Old Vines is the current incarnation of the Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay Mount Eden used to bottle. Because of low yields in Wolff, Jeffrey Patterson augmented that fruit with fruit from Stoller and Niven. Quite simply, this is a fabulous wine for the money." For those wine drinkers who gravitate toward moderate alcohol, trim, focused, earth-driven flavors and brightness in the finish, this is your kind of wine and it has been awarded one of the "Year's 100 Best Buys" by Wine and Spirits Magazine. Jean-Pierre Wolff farms 55 acres of Chardonnay vines in the bucolic Edna Valley, outside the town of San Luis Obispo. Originally planted in 1976 by Edna Valley wine pioneer Andy Macgregor (Wolff purchased the property from Macgregor in 1999), the vineyard is the oldest in the Edna Valley. We have made Chardonnay from these vines since 1985. These mature vines typically yield two to four tons per acre

One the most delicious CA Chardonnays in its price range. A superb value. The 2014 is a mix of old vine sites, not Wolff alone.

As of the 2014 vintage, the Wolff Vineyard designation has been dropped from the label. The yields from the aging vines at Wolff have declined to the point where the winery needed to supplement with fruit from another site in order to maintain established production levels. Now simply labeled as Edna Valley Old Vines.

Always a unique profile from the native ferments, mineral-driven, leesy and weighty, less delineated and complex than the estate wines (or equivalents in Burgundy), but a reasonable approximation of the style.

Opening a bottle, the color is a bright golden straw with aromas of stone and tropical fruits with some floral spices. On the palate crisp pear and lemon zest with a touch of sweet floral spice. Nicely balanced with acidity, the finish is about medium and ends with citrus mineral notes. Drink now for its freshness! Great value on this Chardonnay!
