The 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.
