K&L Notes

This Chardonnay is sourced from Ridge's famed estate vineyard, Monte Bello, which has fractured limestone soils over decomposing Franciscan green stone mixed with clay and loam. Until 2009 this was bottled simply as Santa Cruz Mountains, and is normally available only to the members of the Monte Bello Collector group. It's whole-cluster pressed and fermented on native yeasts.

    I was completely shocked by this wine, but in a good way! They've really scaled back the oak this year at Ridge and allowed the crisp and clean acidity of quality Santa Cruz Mountain fruit to shine through. There's still richness there, but it's more akin to something like Chassagne-Montrachet rather than Napa. It's an elegant wine from front to back and that vibrant acidity makes me want more, and more, and more with each sip I take. Top notch stuff.
