Wente Vineyards Riva Ranch Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Arroyo Seco|
Wine EnthusiastThis is a great price for a single vineyard Chardonnay, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, thanks to the familiar buttered toast and singed oak aromas, which are cut but a lemon-curd-pastry element. The palate falls in line with traditional California style, but done well and balanced, with oak, vanilla and marshmallow flavors.
Wine SpectatorFruity, with white cherry and Gala apple flavors that are accented by minerally and creamy accents. Offers a clean and spicy finish. Drink now through 2019. 120,000 cases made.
