Aubert Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
We have now been working with Ritchie Vineyard for 15 years. In 2014, the vines were over 40 years old, but showed no signs of slowing down. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Vibrant notes of tangerine oil, fresh Meyer lemon juice, and green apple overflow from the glass. Mineral tones bring energetic qualities to the wine and abound with crushed rocks. Of all 15 vintages, the 2014 Ritchie Chardonnay is arguably our best ever. With a healthy combination of rich textures and healthy acidity, this wine will age for the next 10 to 15 years. The wine has a slight hazy clarity showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
A gorgeous mouthful, rich and layered, with honey-scented fig, apricot, honeydew, nutmeg, hazelnut and floral spice flavors, delivered in a powerful yet graceful manner. Drink now. 1,100 cases made.
