2018 axr ritchie vineyard chardonnay | 3 pack futures
The 2018 vintage was a slow growing season with very little heat spells which allowed the fruit to ripen steadily while protecting the acidity. It ended up giving fruit that was harvested at optimum conditions with the ripeness that the winemaker could choose since there was no rain threat at all in the late season. This translated in the cellar into wines that are complex, juicy yet framed with beautiful acidity. It is for me a very complete vintage.
