Arista Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard

Only 5 bottles left
2018 Arista Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard...$99.99
Powerfully structured, with an unctuous mix of white fruit and cooking spice flavors. Hints of roasted fennel midpalate lead to a sculpted finish that shows plenty of toasty accents. Drink now through 2027. 600 cases made.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Spectator
The 2018 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard has so much energy this year! Singular aromas of lemon meringue and preserved grapefruit mingle with accents of white flowers and crushed stone. The palate is light on its feet, silky, super fresh and energetic, with an effortless finish that offers lingering preserved lemon, salty tang and textural grip. This deserves another 2-3 years in bottle, at least.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate
