Mount Eden Vineyards Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay 2020
|California, Central Coast, Edna Valley
|Mount Eden Vineyards
A golden hue in the glass, this bottling from a vineyard first planted in 1976 offers bold aromas of lemon peel, crushed almond and a hint of cheese rind on the nose. There's tremendous tension to the palate, where salted nuts, dried lemon peel and brisk tonic flavors align.
The 2020 Chardonnay Wolff Vineyard is fabulous, something that is all the more remarkable considering the freakish year. Orange confit, pineapple, butter, apricot, tangerine and spice are all dialed up in this decidedly exotic, lush Chardonnay from Mount Eden. The 2020 is not at all subtle, but it sure is delicious.
Complex and distinctive, with pear, nectarine and Honeycrisp apple flavors, salted melon accents and a savory note of tarragon on an appealing fleshy, juicy frame. Drink now. 4,004 cases made.
