The 2015 Chardonnay Estate comes all from the estate vineyard and mostly from a block of vines planted in 1990. Aged in 50% new oak, it’s another brilliant Chardonnay from Jeffrey Patterson that has a rich, concentrated, classic style as well as ample honeyed minerality, orchard fruits, and hints of brioche and toasted spice. Pure, medium to full-bodied and impeccably balanced, you can enjoy bottles today or cellar for 10-15 years, if you’re so inclined.
This classic bottling is still a baby and needs plenty of time to open. When it does, aromas of toasted hazelnuts, light oak, lemon pith and exotic apples show on the nose. The palate combines oak smoke with savory sea salt and sumptuous golden apple fruits. Drink 2019–2030. *Cellar Selection* (MK)
Readers will find a gorgeous wine in the 2015 Chardonnay. Open-knit and radiant, with lovely suppleness, the 2015 will also drink well early, which is unusual for this wine. Tropical fruit, hazelnut, honeysuckle and orange peel give the 2015 a decidedly exotic feel. The Mount Eden Chardonnay is typically a bit more tense in style, but the 2015 vintage yielded an unusually accessible and - dare I say - flamboyant version of this wine. (AG)
Deeply hued and very rich, with notes of beeswax and light smoke to the ripe pear, apple and Marcona almond flavors. The vividly structured finish shows lots of mineral and spice components and plenty of vanillin details. Drink now through 2021. (KM)
Toasted hazelnuts and lemon sherbet, with some preserved lemon character. Rich and suave but there's a taut quality here too, and it favours tension over opulence and overt fruitiness. (Panel Tasting)
