Food Pairings for Ridge Chardonnay Home Ranch
Brillant gold in color. When first open the nose is stone and a bit funky but quickly turnes to melon, banana and fresh strawberries with a hint of honeysuckle and white flowers. As the wine sits in the glass scents of almond and oak come to the surface. The bottles high alcohol shows a bit with each sniff. Full bodied and smooth with apple and pear that leads to a lime finish that last for a full minute. I'm so sad this wine won so many accolades because I'd love to be able to buy more of it
This was my last bottle of this wine and it was quite a send off. The nose opened up showing lemon peel, baked peaches, buttered toast and rain on concrete. It was enjoyable to simply sit and inhale the aromas of this beautiful wine. The palate was rich and smooth with citrus, peach snapps, butter and minerals. It had a great concentration yet remained fresh and lively and left you with a burnt sugar finish that went on for over a minute. There is a certain sweetness to this Chardonnay but it is gorgeous.
It pours a golden yellow and is intensely aromatic. Perfume of white flowers, honeysuckle, quince and pear get your attention immediately. As you swirl, the fruit comes forward with pineapple and melon....beautiful nose. The wine is full and lush in the mouth. Great Pear and fig flavors on the front with toast and mineral rounding out a buttery finish. Brioche toast is a great description. This wine has an incredibly long finish. It is reminiscent of a mature French Montrachet. Incredible. Unlike many American Chardonnay, this one will age. You can be comfortable laying some of this down to evolve, although I cannot imagine you will want to. It is too delicious now.
External Reviews for Ridge Chardonnay Home Ranch
Great balance, depth, elegance and finesse. Shows lots of spicy, toasty, smoky oak, but also plenty of rich, vibrant, smooth and concentrated pear, fig and melon flavors before returning to the toasty oak. Drink now through 2011.
