Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay is our most texturally decadent Chardonnay to date. It has an amazing mid-palate texture that lingers on and on. The flavors are pure Ritchie, stone fruits, minerality and a kiss of freshly caramelized Crème Brulee. With each sip, it gains power and length. While I enjoy drinking this wine so much now, I think it will really hit its stride in another year. The power of this vineyard makes it age worthy and there are so many layers that will develop with time, there is no rush to drink it right off the bat.
