The Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay walks the fine line between richness & delicacy. It has a complex and harmonious mouthfeel that balances power with elegance.
Jeb Dunnuck 96 - If I to pick one Chardonnay in the lineup, it would be the 2016 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard, a vibrant, pure, concentrated beauty that has loads of white flowers, citrus, and salty minerality. With medium to full body, bright acidity, and terrific balance, it has a touch of Chablis-like character (yet on steroids) and is a beautiful complete Chardonnay that can be drunk any time over the coming 10-15 years.
Wine Spectator 94 - A firm, mineral-filled version, backed by powerful acidity, featuring rich toasty notes to the baked apple and dried pear flavors, with savory touches. Buttery accents emerge on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2025.
