Concentrated aromas of hawthorn, dried pineapple, salted caramel and buttered toast. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity and intense, tightly wound layers of ripe, spiced fruit. Fantastic phenolic tension and energy here. Drink or hold.

The 2019 Ridge Estate Chardonnay deftly combines richness with balance. This wine offers lovely aromas and flavors of green apple, bright citrus, and an accent of oak. Enjoy it with pan-fried halibut.
Pale, sun-bleached straw color with aromas of fresh lemon zest, green apple, wet stone, and honeysuckle flowers. Creamy texture on the palate with juicy acidity, notes of salinity, and citrus blossom and pineapple on the finish.
