Ridge Estate Chardonnay 2016


Region: Santa Cruz, California


Varietal: 100% Chardonnay




Description. Apricot, citrus and pear aromas. On the palate - attractive tropical fruit, refreshing acidity and elegant texture. Excellent balance.

Vineyards: Ridge produced its first Chardonnay in 1962 from vines planted in the late 1940s in Monte Bello. The Monte Bello plantings overlook San Francisco from the Santa Cruz Mountains, a private appellation separating the north from the central coast. The soils are limestone overlain by decomposing Franciscan greenstone mixed with clay.</
