Londer Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Kent Ritchie Vineyard 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Spectator ReviewFragrant floral, pear and honeysuckle aromas carry over to the palate, offering a light dose of cedary oak. Shows a rich, complex aftertaste, with flavors that run deep. Drink now through 2010.Wine Tasting NotesThe floral nose shows hints of spicy oak, andpear. Good weight with integrated flavors of Bosc pears, melon, butterscotch, and cream Brule. Great long, oily finish with both nutmeg and grilled nuts to finish it off.

We are located approximately 120 miles north of San Francisco, in the southwestern corner of California's Mendocino County. The blanket of fog that ordinarily curls up from the coast most summer nights and then burns off during the warm dry sunny days allow the vineyards to produce grapes that slowly develop and ripen. We are one of the coolest of the state's so-called cool-climate wine regions. This is ideal for growing varietals such as Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay. We have planted about 15 acres of Pinot Noir--using five different clones, and an acre of Gewurztraminer. Most of the vineyard is on south facing hills with a combination of well-drained sandy loam covering an underlying clay loam. The Navarro River forms our southern boundary and brings the fog right up to our door. Along with our grapes we grow strawberries, olives, plums, figs, tomatoes, a variety of leafy vegetables, lavender and a whole lot of raspberries. Read less
