Winemaker Notes

The Ritchie Chardonnay is the elder statesman in the lineup. The 2015 once again shows off the old school, old vine character of this site. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Intriguing aromas of white flowers, quince, and fusil oils waft up from the glass. Oily richness in the mouth is indicative of the vine age. Spiced apple sauce, hazelnut and exotic citrus complete this classic Chardonnay. Very enjoyable now but should age well for 15+ years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Rating 97-100. The 2015 Chardonnay Ritchie (from 43-year-old vines) offers loads of tangerine and orange tropical fruit notes along with brioche and citrus oil. Production was tiny on these old vines, exaggerated by the poor flowering. Produced from 100% Old Wente clone, this wine also shows wet gravelly minerality, terrific natural acidity from the super-concentrated, tiny berries, and a long, full-bodied finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years, possibly longer.

James Suckling
Sliced apple and lime. White flower undertones. Medium to full body, intense center palate of stone and pomace undertones. Very long and flavorful.
