Full-bodied and delicious! For those who love full-throttle Californian chardonnay: toasty oak, butterscotch, vibrant green apple and peach notes.

Ridge began making Chardonnay in 1962 and for many years it was a hidden gem sold only at the winery. The fruit for the 2010 Chardonnay is all hand-picked from the Monte Bello Vineyard and whole-cluster pressed. A Chardonnay fan’s dream wine, it is fermented using only natural yeasts and aged for 12 months in a mix of new and used oak. Winemaker Eric Baugher says the 2010 is “remarkably similar to the ’09 vintage” which is good news. An elegant Chardonnay that will continue to evolve over the next several years.
