COMMENTARY: The 2017 Eden Rift Vineyards Estate Chardonnay shows up firm and nicely-textured on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine is luxurious and nicely-balanced. Enjoy its ripe core fruit, oak and mineral aromas and flavors with a bowl of steamed clams. (Tasted: October 31, 2019, San Francisco, CA

Extremely pure and crisp on the nose, this bottling starts with aromas of pure apple and crushed chalk. There is great zip to the sip and sharp flavors of white peach and lime custard that are vibrant and alive. Drink now–2032.

Cut from the same cloth, the 2017 Chardonnay Estate offers a beautiful lemon and stone fruit core as well as a touch of white flowers and creamy vanilla. It's a softer, more rounded, forward wine compared to the 2016 and will drink nicely for 2-3 years.
90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Grapes for the 2017 Chardonnay Estate were harvested September 18 and October 1-3. Aged in 18% new French oak for 10 months, the nose is brightly scented of Meyer lemon peel, fresh quince, Bosc pear and white peaches with a floral undercurrent plus touches of crushed slate and yeast. The palate is light-bodied, bright and fresh with honeyed bass notes and great freshness on the long, clean finish.
