Since our founding in 1975, we have dedicated ourselves to crafting wines that showcase the purity, elegance and aging potential that can be achieved from the finest vineyards on the Central Coast. Planted in 1849, Eden Rift is one of the oldest continually producing vineyards in California. Located 2 miles from our Mt. Harlan Estate, it is a cool, windswept site with limestone-rich granite and loam soils. Spurced from a prized east-facing block of Calera Clone Chardonnay, this sleek and graceful wine offers vibrant citrus flavors with hints of juicy tropical fruit.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Winemaker Notes
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.
Production
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.
