Wente Riva Ranch Vineyard 2019 Chardonnay is produced from sustainably-grown grapes sourced from a single-vineyard from the cool-climate Arroyo Seco in Monterey County. This Cali Chard, with a splash of Gew├╝rztraminer, is dry, full-bodied, fragrant, full and buttery on the palate with summer florals, tropical fruit, dried wild herbs, white pepper, lemon-lime zest and briny mineral flavours on the palate. The wine was fermented in French and American oak barrels (90%) and stainless-steel tanks (10%). Chill and enjoy with seafood chowder.

Chardonnay food pairings: pan-seared scallops, blackened chicken, lobster, corn-on-the-cob.
