Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive apple bouquet with hints of faint vanilla and pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavors profile is a delicious pear with notes of mild minerality and pineapple. I also detected a touch of tangerine, oak and ginger towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a little while. This Chardonnay is food friendly and would pair very nicely with lobster casserole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Ritchie Chardonnay walks the fine line between richness and delicacy. It has a great mouthfeel that balances power and elegance.
