2011 Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley
The 2011 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is wonderfully intense and saline from start to finish. Bright floral notes meld into orchard fruit, spices and slate. This is one of the brightest, most focused Chardonnays in the range. All the elements are simply in the right place for the 2011 to develop into an even more beautiful wine.
