Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A rich nose of vanilla and tropical fruit notes. The palate shows bright tropical passionfruit, pineapple, butterscotch and a little oak. Rich, full-bodied with a long citrus butter finish.
This Californian Chardonnay is redolent with guava and passionfruit aromas and flavours. The 2011 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard finishes with butterscotch and toasty oak notes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
