Wente Vineyards Riva Ranch Chardonnay 2016

SKU 12529


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.
