    Winemaker Notes

    The Poplar Vineyard is owned by Donna and Kent Ritchie, and this pristine vineyard is located off Eastside Road in Forestville. This is the second year that we have produced a vineyard-designated wine from the Poplar Vineyard, and the 1997 version is an absolute powerhouse. The wine is round and full with elegant flavors of ripe Fuji apples and tropical melon with a definite hazelnut tone. Intense perfectly ripe flavors and toasty French oak combine to form a gracefully balanced wine. Once again there is layer upon layer of supple complexity with a pronounced finish. This is a wine which will certainly turn heads.

    Fritz Underground Winery, Sonoma County, California
    1998 Poplar Chardonnay
    Guided by his vision of creating a small family winery specializing in handcrafted, limited-edition, wines, Arthur "Jay" Fritz built a radically designed subterranean facility high upon a hill in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County. With offerings from both the Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys, Fritz is particularly distinguished for their vineyard designated Chardonnays.

    Sourced from some of the most sought after parcels in the Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys, these single-vineyard wines reflect consultant Helen Turley's signature approach of extreme vineyard management and artisan winemaking.

    The exceptional benefits of unique terroir represented by discreet blocks of vines, combined with quality-driven vineyard practices, result in extraordinary fruit. The winery's unusual three-tiered gravity flow design virtually eliminates pumping and ensures juice devoid of harsh phenolics. Over 200 linear feet of caves stretch into the hillside, providing ideal aging conditions for the reds.

    The commitment to quality, from vineyard to bottle, is the hallmark of Fritz wines.
