Arroyo Seco is widely regarded as one of the best places in California to grow Chardonnay. Riva Ranch is the name of the Wente family’s vineyard in Arroyo Seco, where we have been growing Chardonnay since the 1960’s. Wente Vineyards was the first California winery to produce a wine labeled as Chardonnay in 1936. Today, many of the great Chardonnay vineyards in California are planted with the Wente Clone. The majority of this wine was barrel fermented, while the balance was fermented in stainless steel. After primary fermentation, the wine was allowed to naturally undergo malolactic fermentation and then aged sur lie for 8 months in new American oak barrels. The wine shows a luscious mouthfeel with flavors of pear, vanilla and butterscotch and a long, finish.

A crowd-pleasing Chardonnay from Wente, working in the Monterey area, the result all caramel, vanilla and lemon-lime with a sweet tropical chaser on the finish. The oak is subtle. This wine will pair deliciously with a range of food, particularly chicken and seafood.
