Our 2015 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sourced from the legendary Ritchie Vineyard, a vineyard that was planted in 1971 and is widely-recognized to be amongst some of the very best Chardonnay sites in the country.  The Old Wente clone (on AXR-1 rootstock) Chardonnay is grown on the rolling hillsides of the Russian River Valley. The Sandy Goldridge Loam soils that the Chardonnay grapes are grown on originated from an archaic seabed containing tuffaceous volcanic pumice deposits mixed with small pebbles. The oceanic coastal breezes deliver cooling fog in the mornings and evenings, creating idyllic balanced growing conditions.  This combination brings forth an exceptionally unique “Grand Cru” site that produces wines of intense character and complexity.

“Vibrant and racy aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruits laced with citrus peel and a hint of wet stone.  A beautiful and rich mouthfeel with notes of orange blossom and nectarine all framed by lip smacking acidity.  A Chardonnay to enjoy now but worthy of several years in the cellar.”

Not your typical Chard, this is blessed with great acidity and very well integrated oak. "Rich body that lingers on the palate accentuated by sweet French oak characteristics."
