SKU 15428


The 2016 Single Vineyard Riva Ranch Chardonnay has lovely notes of citrus and tropical fruit, such as pineapple and mango. The rich mouthfeel gives a taste of lemon-curd or a baked apple tart, graham and toasty vanilla from barrel aging. This opulent Chardonnay has balanced acidity and a long, smooth lingering finish.

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.
