Wente Vineyards Chardonnay Riva Ranch 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Riva Ranch Chardonnay is a beautifully rich, yet balanced style of Chardonnay that represents what the Arroyo Seco appellation has to give. Deep, rich soils allow for vines with deep roots, which help to deliver rich fruit flavors. In addition to the classic Chardonnay aromas of apple and pear, Arroyo Seco consistently delivers aromas of tropical fruits and stone fruits. This is distinctly a California style of Chardonnay, but is consistently well balanced with ample acidity.

A crowd-pleasing Chardonnay from Wente, working in the Monterey area, the result all caramel, vanilla and lemon-lime with a sweet tropical chaser on the finish. The oak is subtle. This wine will pair deliciously with a range of food, particularly chicken and seafood.
