    Winemaker's Notes:

    #13 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    The 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very rich and intense, this deeply concentrated and perfumed white delivers detailed flavors of white peach, honeysuckle, fig and citrus. Full-bodied, sleek and leesy, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2018.

    Yellow-gold. Sexy, expansive aromas of fresh pit fruits, mace, clove and flowers, with a honeyed undertone. Rich, supple and dense, with exotic, almost liqueur-like suggestions of yellow plum and pineapple. The finish clings with real authority, echoing the honey and spice notes. A powerful but surprisingly energetic chardonnay that has the concentration to age but offers a lot of appeal already.
