A fantastic boutique discovery in small-production Chardonnay from the legendary Ritchie Vineyard from Metzker Family Estates. 93 Points Wine Spectator: "Very rich, with brioche notes to the succulent ripe pear, apple pastry and dried apricot flavors. Shows fine density and texture, with a long finish loaded with hints of spice and honey. Drink now through 2022. 275 cases made." The 2016 Chardonnay from Ritchie Vineyard has aromas of honeysuckle, melon and lemon rind. There is an underlying layer of nuttiness reminiscent of smoked hazelnuts that gracefully comes through. With its full body and lavish mouthfeel, this wine is balanced by the minerality and acidity characteristic of these 40-year-old vines on the Ritchie Vineyard property.
