Edge Hill was considered one of the finest wine estates in Napa Valley until it ceased production in 1907. Inspired by this legacy, Leslie Rudd restored this historic property and is now handcrafting a limited production of select wines, using exceptional grapes from heritage vineyard sites. Bacigalupi Vineyard first garnered the attention of the world when in the 1978 Paris Tasting, the winning Chateau Montelena Chardonnay came from this old vine Chardonnay site. Today, those same vines are what makes this Edge Hill Chardonnay so special.
"Aromatics of ripe pear and apple flesh and honeysuckle are present. Mouth coating and creamy, a mineral texture gives a saline sensation and vivacity to the wine. The oak is integrated and balanced with the fruit component- apple, pear and sugared lemon rind. With depth and concentration, the 2015 Edge Hill from the historic Judgment of Paris block will continue to develop complexity and finesse with 8-15 years of aging.
