"Mount Eden's 2014 Chardonnay Old Vines, from a site in Edna Valley, is pretty, understated and gracious. Pear, white flowers and sweet spices are all nicely delineated throughout in this super-attractive, mid-weight Chardonnay. Readers will have a hard time finding a better wine for the money. The Old Vines is the current incarnation of the Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay Mount Eden used to bottle. Because of low yields in Wolff, Jeffrey Patterson augmented that fruit with fruit from Stoller and Niven. Quite simply, this is a fabulous wine for the money." ~ AG

From vineyards planted between 1973 and 1976 comes this more southerly bottling from the Santa Cruz Mountains-based winery. Pithy and clean, the nose matches kumquat and pomelo with a touch of smoked chicken flesh. The palate leads with a citrusy edge, showing pear flesh in the midpalate and Marcona almond toward the finish. It's mouthwatering with a very full texture." ~ MK

**This bottling used to be known as the 'Wolff Vineyard' - it has always been a blend of a few different vineyards with the Wolff vineyard being the dominate source. With declining yields at Wolff, winemaker, Jeffrey Patterson increased the amounts from Stoller and Niven. For all vintages moving forward this will simply be known as Mount Eden Old Vine Chardonnay. Same great wine as the Wolff Vineyard with basically no label change (Wolff was always in tiny letters)?**

Customer Reviews

5/5 stars
Staff Pick: Jake B - This beautiful Chardonnay from Santa Cruz, California is characterized by white flowers, tropical fruit, and well integrated French oak. The result is a well balanced, medium bodied wine that combines new world style with an old world sense of restraint. An entry level offering from the fabled winery Mount Eden, this is an extremely high quality, yet affordable addition to anybody's collection. Drink now until 2019.
