Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2015

$27.99

I always love this Chardonnay from winemaker Jeffrey Patterson. The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains comes from an estate just south of Mount Eden that was purchased by Jeffrey in 2007. This wine is always a mix of both estates (Domaine Eden and Mount Eden) and also gets a touch of purchased fruit. The 2015 has wonderful freshness and purity, with vibrant white flowers and caramelized citrus, medium body, lots of salinity, and a pure, clean, age-worthy style. It can be drunk any time over the coming decade or more. Jeb Dunnuck

Bumping the ‘15 up a notch - I think highly agreeable

Excellent Chardonnay. A California version of Montrachet. I am not normally a fan of buttery, oaky Chards, but this was really good. Very nicely balanced.

Was expecting a bit more acidity. A bit soft, ripe apple and pear.
