Tasting Notes

The 2021 Ritchie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of juicy pineapple and ripe melon, complemented by subtle hints of vanilla and toasted oak from the barrel fermentation. The first sip is refreshing and crisp, with lively acidity and flavors of lemon zest, grapefruit, and passion fruit. The creamy mouthfeel and weight on the palate are a result of the 36% new French oak, adding layers of complexity and a touch of spice to the wine. The finish is long and lingering, with a pleasant minerality that leaves you wanting more.

The Ritchie Vineyard in Sonoma, California, stands as a testament to Kent Ritchie’s enduring passion and commitment, spanning decades of meticulous care. The unique soil composition and cool, foggy climate result in fruit with natural minerality and balanced acidity, creating wines that are fresh, vibrant, and lively.
