The 2021 Chardonnay Lithology Ritchie Vineyard showed beautifully, with a floral, subtle tropical slant in its honeyed citrus, white flowers, green almond, and chalky mineral aromas and flavors. This rich, medium to full-bodied, beautiful layered, seamless Chardonnay has integrated acidity, a great mid-palate, and outstanding length.

Vineyard

An iconic vineyard for Russian River Valley Chardonnay the Ritchie vineyard is planted with 40+-year-old Wente clone vines that are carefully cared for by Kent Ritchie. The age and clone cause the fruit to retain much of the natural minerality and acidity of the Russian River Valley so the wines are fresh and vibrant.
