Mount Eden Old Vines Chardonnay 2015/16

(Previously known as the Wolff Vineyard) - From one of the original Santa Cruz Mountain boutique wineries (founded in 1945) comes this classy atypical Chardonnay. A small crop, one ton per acre, was harvested in late October. This has to be the last Chardonnay to be picked in California. Because of the ocean influence, final ripening comes at a glacial pace; deepening the flavors while retaining mouthwatering acidity. For those wine drinkers who gravitate toward moderate alcohol, trim, focused, earth-driven flavors and brightness in the finish, this is your kind of wine. And if you think you don't like Cali Chards because you've been clobbered over the head with huge, oaky examples then you should definitely give this a shot.
