Ramey Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2013


SKU 19297



Winemaker Notes
#38 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016

Our Ritchie Chardonnay walks the fine line between richness & delicacy. It has a complex and harmonious mouthfeel that balances power & elegance. 2013 summed up to be a perfect vintage with clear sunny days and cool evenings. This produced a long, moderate growing season with extended hang time and even ripening, resulting in a full range of flavors while retaining natural acidity.

Wine AdvocateFrom a famous terroir comes the 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard, which was planted in 1972 and possesses some of the oldest Chardonnay vines in Northern California. The wine has lemon custard notes intermixed with orange marmalade and honeysuckle in a medium to full-bodied, refreshing style. Drink now-2020.
