  • Wine Advocate, February 2021, Score: 92

    The 2018 Chardonnay Terraces, from terraced vines planted in 1996, opens to delicate notes of crushed shell, chamomile and almonds on the nose, with soft notions of saline and green herbs. The palate is soft and understated, carried by bright acidity and mineral character, and it finishes long and uplifted. 139 cases were made.

  • James Suckling, March 2022, Score: 97

    Green apple, green mango and flint on the nose with hints of almonds. This is so compact and polished with such energy and beauty. Phenolics spread across the palate and melt in. Great chardonnay. Drink or hold.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, January 2021, Score: 92

    Sporting a vivid gold color, the 2018 Chardonnay Terraces comes from the Cienega Valley, which is near the cool Monterey Bay. It offers a classy nose of caramelized orchard fruits, buttered peach, and honeyed citrus as well as medium body, a balanced, elegant texture, a touch of background oak, and a great finish. As with all of these whites, the balance is spot on and it's just a beautiful wine. Enjoy bottles over the coming 2-4 years. Drink 2021 - 2025

Under vine since 1849, Eden Rift is one of the oldest continually producing estate vineyards in California. A remote, pacific refuge located under the shadow of the Gavilan Mountain Range, the estate rests on the San Andreas Fault. Only 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, this site benefits from an ideal, temperate maritime climate as well as the coveted calcareous soils requisite in the cultivation of vivid and energetic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Eden Rift's winemaker Cory Waller, spent time in Napa, Oregon and in Martinborough, New Zealand, and neighbouring Calera, before joining the team at Eden Rift. A man of few words, Waller favours the fruit of vines that struggle profoundly to produce small, yet delineated yields. He prefers to allow Mother Nature to do her thing.Read less
