Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay shows much of the same power and youth seen in 2001 and 2002. Now over a decade old, these wines are still full of life, and we expect the 2013 to offer much of the same structure for continued bottle aging. Initial impressions reveal Ritchie's signature aromatics of lime zest, dried pineapple and green tea. Uplifting notes of white peach and honeycomb highlight the 2013 vintage in specific. Yellow hues and an intense green to the edge of the glass duly note this is Ritchie. The unique structure of our Chardonnay is focused with powerful length on the palate, and will allow this wine to age for 15+ years. The wine has a slight hazy clarity showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the oldest vines that Aubert works with, the 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is made from the old Wente clone favored by so many of the top winemakers for Chardonnay. It boasts the wet rocks and candied citrus, the white peach and pineapple notes, has a strong green hue to the light gold color, and a full-bodied, powerful finish. It is a ten-year wine at the minimum.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Pure, rich and vibrant, with a sleek build and a tight mix of green apple, citrus, mineral and melon flavors, ending with a juicy aftertaste. A sleek beam of zesty fruit makes this striking. Drink now through 2020.
