Food Pairings for Ridge Estate Chardonnay
Editorial Reviews for Ridge Estate Chardonnay
Bottled just three weeks prior to tasting, this would probably show better after being allowed to settle down a bit. The nose is fairly oaky in a nutty vein, with a little banana and lemon balm fruit streaked with chalky mineral notes. Light and fresh in the mouth, this is round but with fine acidity. The fruit is estery in a little Fruit Stripe gum kind of way, and the finish shows some wood tannin. Not yet tightly knit, this is fruity up front and then woody on the back end. 87 points
Tropical pineapple fruit on the nose with white flowers, apricot, and honeysuckle. A rich entry and good texture, showing ripe apple and pear fruit on the palate. Medium bodied, crisp acidity, and a long finish.
