The 2016 Ryo-fu Chardonnay is a delightful wine that can be enjoyed much sooner than past few releases. The nose is a combination of delicate stone fruit and a lemon-cream character, without a hint of reduction or oak. There is a silkiness on the palate which is surprising in such a young wine. Fruit and acidity are eﬀortlessly balanced, with no sharp edges. Enjoy this from 2018 through 2024.
Subdued on the nose, the 2017 Chardonnay Ryo-fu gives up soft pear and white fruits with touches of toast. It's medium-bodied, clean and fresh with toasty fruits and some nuttiness on the finish.
