Arista Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard – 2016 – Jeb Dunnuck – 99 Points

From a famous site in the Russian River, the 2016 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard spent a year in one-third new French oak followed by six months in tank. With a ting of green in its gold color, it has more Chablis-like lemon drops, white flowers, and lemongrass aromatics to go with a marine-like salinity and obvious crushed rock minerality. It’s rich, deep, and concentrated on the palate, with a beautiful texture, as well as bright, integrated acidity. It’s a beautiful wine.

Russian River Valley’s Prestigious Wine Growing Region

The Russian River Valley makes another big stride in proving itself to be one of the world’s premiere wine growing regions. In the 2019 Sonoma County Harvest Fair Wine Competition, the top three Sweepstakes winners were all wines made with Russian River Valley grapes. All three of the wineries are also members of the Russian River Valley Winegrowers (RRVW).
