Domaine Eden is a mountaintop wine estate purchased by Mount Eden Vineyards in 2007. It was initially planted with select Mount Eden clones of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and evolved to include Pinot Noir from various Dijon and California selections. The viticulture at Domaine Eden is approached with the same degree of sustainability and attention to natural patterns as Mount Eden’s estate vineyards. The soils, however, are different from the estate’s Franciscan shale. This means that although Domaine Eden is a mere mile away “as the crow flies”, the wines express more varietal fruit and expansive mid-palate flavour than the somewhat leaner spine of minerality that characterizes Mount Eden’s estate releases.

 

As always, this bottling blends Chardonnay from the winery’s estate vineyards and Domaine Eden property. It is produced in the same cave, with the same barrel-fermentation practices and the same sur-lie aging as the estate wine: following fermentation in small barrels and nine months maturation on fine lees, it was bottled without fining. The one key difference is the absence of new oak. The resulting wine is complex, with great ageing potential.  Displaying classics Santa Cruz Mountains acidity, the wine is just starting to evolve in the bottle; a sign that suggests a long life.

 

A solid core of youthful citrus, orange blossom and honeysuckle aromas combine with broad, savoury flavours and a long, seamless finish. Still a baby, this 2016 should drink well for another decade.

 

“The 2017 Chardonnay is absolutely gorgeous. Apricot, tangerine oil, butter and light tropical accents give the 2017 striking exotic character that match its rich oily personality so well. This is a decidedly extroverted wine from Domaine Eden, but it all works so well. There is a feeling of immediacy and allure that makes the 2017 impossible to resist. The Domaine Eden Chardonnay is a blend of declassified barrels (64%) and lots from the Domaine Eden property itself (36%), aged in 2-5 year old wood. 2020-2025.”

“Tangerine rind, light walnut and a hint of lanolin show on the nose of this bottling, always a unique and classic take on the region’s Chardonnay. Lemon-balm, grapefruit-peel and light sourdough-toast flavors grab hold of the palate, balancing sour and rich elements, with loads of lingering acidity.”
