Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from the Richie Vineyard is terrific. It opens with a Meyer lemon bouquet with hints of pineapple, bread dough and light oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty toasted coconut and lemon blend with notes of Bosc pear. I also detected hints of delicate oak and minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chardonnay could certainly be consumed on its own. With food, I would serve it with pan-fried crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Ritchie Chardonnay walks the fine line between richness and delicacy. It has a complex and harmonious mouthfeel that balances power and elegance.
