Eden Rift Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 2018

Critical Acclaim: 95 pts James Suckling; 94 pts Jeb Dunnuck; 91 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: A tribute and testament to the vineyard's natural setting as well as its meticulous farmed Chardonnay vines. This offering was whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented on native yeasts, and aged in 100% French oak barrels (18% new) for 10 months. This well-balanced Chardonnay went through 100% Malolactic fermentation with battonage twice per month for 6 months.

"This just takes off at the finish, with bright, tangy acidity and plenty of minerality. Full-bodied and so tangy and energetic. Fantastic chardonnay. Hints of aniseed and flint. Grows in the glass. Delicious now, but will age beautifully."- James Suckling. 

"The 2018 Chardonnay Estate sports a medium gold hue to go with a gorgeous nose of white peach, stone fruits, honeysuckle, and toasted bread. Beautifully balanced, elegant, and with plenty of sweet fruit and great acidity, this is a killer Chardonnay I'd be thrilled to drink."- Jeb Dunnuck. 

"The 2018 Chardonnay Estate has inviting aromas of spiced apples, toast and dried flowers with a honeyed undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied, bright, textural and nutty with a long, mineral-laced finish."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

Varietal: Chardonnay.
