Ramey Chardonnay Russian River This vintage marks a significant change in our Russian River grape sourcing. For the first time weï¿½ve included four vineyards from Rochioli Vineyards, including Allen, as one-third of the blend; three vineyards from the Dutton Ranches (27%); with 29% continuing to come from the Charles Heintz Ranch near Occidental. There is also 11% from the small Green Pastures Vineyard: 37-year-old Wente in a pocket canyon up Felta Creek Road. Perhaps because of the new components, we think it's our finest Russian River Chardonnay to date. Goldridge loam and gravelly soils provide a crisper mouthfeel to Russian River Chardonnays compared with their Carneros counterparts.
The 2005 Ramey Carneros Chardonnay is bright lemon-yellow with a green tinge. Very ripe aromas of candied lemon peel, mirabelle and baking spices. At once generous and sappy, with complex flavors of yellow fruits, apple and spices. Finishes with very good grip.
