As is true of all the wines of 2013, the signature is power. Showing buoyant aromas of hon- eysuckle, citrus blossom, lime zest and earth, this Chardonnay has complexity which is due, in part, to the barrel fermentation and lees aging process. On the palate deep intense flavors of guava, mint, passion fruit and earth are delicious and long. This wine is always one of the best values in California Chardonnay. This is our 29th consecutive vintage from this venerable vineyard which is not only the longest continuous bottling from Edna Valley, it is from its oldest producing vineyard.

Wine EnthusiastThis offers good quality for the price from this historic producer, which heads south to this dry-farmed vineyard planted in 1976. The wine shows lots of lemon scents, from blossoms to peels, along with browned butter, sea salt and smoke. The palate offers singed lime peels, red grapefruit skin, iodine and sour yellow apple peels, proving quite complex.

Wine AdvocateComing from the Edna Valley, the 2013 Chardonnay Wolff Vineyard has lots of matchstick-like minerality, apple blossom and white flower notes in its medium-bodied, supple, juicy and easy drinking style. This is another high class Chardonnay that sells for a song.
