    Christian Pillsbury is incredibly proud of his 2019s, and deservedly so. Bright and lifted, the 2019 Estate Chardonnay offers layer upon layer of irresistible orchard fruit: crisp red apple, golden pear and quince complemented by fresh ginger and lemon. There’s a beautiful line of energy to this wine and a saline freshness backed up by perfectly judged oak, giving sumptuous spice and toasty, hazelnut complexities. Silky, cool and crystalline, and drinking so wonderfully. Drink 2023 -2027.

Producer

Eden Rift Vineyards

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.
