Eden Rift

2017 Reserve Chardonnay

2017 Reserve Chardonnay

A selection of 4 barrels were called out for Eden Rift’s inaugural bottling of Reserve Chardonnay. All from Block A, fruit was hand-harvested at night on the first day of October in 2017. At the winery, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed with the resulting juice transferred to a holding tank for cold-settling. Following 24 hours of settling the juice was racked to French oak barrels (25% new) for fermentation. Fermented on native yeast, the wine was aged “sur-lie” for over 10 months before being bottled in mid-July 2018.

Wine Profile
Ratings
94pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2018 (Issue 236): "The 2016 Pinot Noir Reserve reveals even more aromatic depth than the regular cuvée, notes of cherry, plum and pomegranate mingling with notions of wood smoke, rich soil and burnt sage. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and multidimensional, with silky structuring tannins, expansive attack and considerable mid-palate amplitude. The finish is long and tangy. While the tannins are as beautifully refined as those found in the regular bottling, the Pinot Noir Reserve's additional latent potential make a few years of cellaring advisable."
