Located 2 miles from our Mt. Harlan Estate, the limestone-rich soils of the historic Eden Rift Vineyard produced a sleek and graceful Chardonnay with enticing tropical and citrus aromas. On the palate, flavors of green apple, Key lime and tropical fruits are framed by energetic acidity, with hints of jasmine and muscat emerging on the long, dynamic finish.
After a cool winter, the 2020 growing season began with spring rains that replenished our soils and set the stage for an excellent vintage. After a late-March budbreak, we enjoyed temperate, sunny days and cool nights throughout spring and summer, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen, while preserving the bright natural acids that we prize. With no significant heat events, the 2020 vintage produced age-worthy wines with enticing aromatics, lovely freshness and purity, and beautifully delineated varietal flavors.
