From the famous Monte Bello Vineyard, Estate Chardonnay is what, until 2008, was known as Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay.
100% Chardonnay, barrel fermented and then aged for 14 months in predominantly American oak (94%) and a small percentage in French oak (6%). A quarter of the wood is new, a quarter 1 and 2 years old and the remaining half is a mixture of 3, 4, and 5 year old wood.
“Tropical notes of ripe pineapple, fig, and honeysuckle on the nose. A rich, oily texture on the palate with strong flavors of apple and pear. Full-bodied with crisp acidity and an intense finish.” Eric Baugher – winemaker at Ridge
