Aubert Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
Wine AdvocateFrom Aubert's oldest vines, the 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie (1,000 cases produced) is made from the 40-year-old Chardonnay clone called Old Wente. Candied citrus, wet rocks, Granny Smith apples, white peach and honeysuckle notes are found in this full-bodied, prodigious Chardonnay with crisp acidity buttressing the viscous, full-throttle style. All of these 2013s have at least a decade of aging potential.
Wine SpectatorPure, rich and vibrant, with a sleek build and a tight mix of green apple, citrus, mineral and melon flavors, ending with a juicy aftertaste. A sleek beam of zesty fruit makes this striking. Drink now through 2020. 1,100 cases made.
