    The 2015 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard delivers pronounced pink grapefruit, green mango and pineapple notes with touches of jasmine, coriander seed and ginger plus a waft of lanolin. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with tropical flavors, supported by great freshness, finishing very long and spicy.

    The 2015 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is powerful, deep and beautifully expressive, with tremendous resonance in all of its dimensions. Vivid, voluptuous and racy, the 2015 exudes class. Crushed rocks, white orchard fruit, lemon peel and mint are all very nicely delineated. Above all else, the Ritchie offers surprising freshness and nuance for such a big wine. The Arista Ritchie emerges from 40 year-old vines on the highest part of the property.
