K&L Notes

Producer notes: "2007 was a drought year of historic severity. Sixteen inches fell during the winter – the last time that happened was 1977, thirty years previously. Other than that, it was a great growing season. We still kept our dry-farming philosophy (the only sustainability that works in my world) and the late summer, early fall were textbook mild and sunny. The style of this vintage is what I have been trying to achieve recently. Reticent in fruit yet buoyant in personality, this Chardonnay has penetrating, compelling aromas unique to Mount Eden – earth, quince, and lime zest. On the palate, the first impression is of solid acidity with the fruit in the background but abundant richness, texture and minerality in the foreground. Overall, an exquisite, teasing tautness completes the picture. Built to age gracefully, expect improvement through 2012 and a drinking plateau through 2025 with proper cellaring."

    Mount Eden's full bodied Estate Chardonnay displays fine underlying acidity and a long finish. Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut add interest to the core lemon, mineral flavors. Of all Mount Eden’s estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true character. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California’s longest-lived white wines.
