Richie Allen was raised in Melbourne, Australia, in a leafy suburb approximately 40 minutes east of Australia’s infamous wine region, the Yarra Valley. Influenced greatly by his parent’s keen interest, Richie grew up with a greater appreciation of wine than the average young Australian male. Upon graduation from high school in 1996, Richie chose to explore his knowledge in an alternate area of interest: Molecular Biology. Always the model student, he graduated at the top of his class, however, not convinced with the path he was laying down for himself, Richie embarked on a four-month rock climbing holiday to the United States to clear his thoughts. It was on this adventure that fate came knocking in the form of an invitation to a day of wine tasting. Richie was so taken and inspired by the Californian wines he tasted that day that it was suddenly clear to him what he needed to do. He promptly returned to Australia and spent the next few years engrossed in winemaking studies at Australia’s prestigious ‘The University of Adelaide’. After graduating in 2003, he then set about gaining as much practical winery experience as possible from top Australian and New Zealand producers including: Penfolds, Oakridge, Church Road and Vavasour. He eventually found himself back in California, on the doorstep of Rombauer Vineyards to undertake cellar work for a single harvest. However, Richie’s enthusiasm, vast and growing knowledge, and attention to detail were keenly identified and he was asked to continue on at Rombauer to see this potential expertly developed and nurtured. Having worked his way from the ground up, Richie now assumes the position of Rombauer’s Winemaker. In this role, Richie strives to achieve consistency of style and continual improvement in winemaking techniques by melding both traditional and modern approaches. Away from the winery, you’re likely to find Richie pursuing his passion for rock climbing. Read less

Scents of toast, butter, and pineapple. Not overly oaky...smoke and spice; with a pineapple and cream finish.

Had this during my engagement dinner, and it was an instant favorite. Rich yellow gold in the glass, the nose is heady, with floral and cedar over fresh fruit. The first taste was an explosion of fruit, mainly peaches and kiwi, followed by some rich nutty flavors and all surrounded by good acidity and toasty oak and vanilla. A big chardonnay. Long finish, if I could find more I would cellar some, but the local wine store is always sold out.

Very nice Chardonnay, not overly oaked, but with just enough to add substance. Clear, crisp fruit with a hint of balancing acidity. Clean finish.

Next to Destino, this is probably my favorite Chardonnay. I favor well balanced Chardonnays with a good bit of butter, tropical fruit and bear.

Rombauer 2007 Chardonnay winemakers notes: Rombauer Vineyards 2007 Carneros Chardonnay is smooth, rich, and elegant, true to the Rombauer style. Apple, peach, and tropical fruit flavors weave together in a nice range of flavors that linger on the palate ending with a long, crisp, fruity aftertaste. The oak tones from both barrel fermentation and aging are nicely melded into the flavor and finish of the wine. Rombauer Vineyards Carneros Chardonnay is ranked as the 3rd Most Popular Chardonnay in American restaurants according to a recent poll in Wine & Spirits magazine. Winemakers comments:"We have a particular style that weve developed with that wine. I wouldnt call it buttery per se, but it is rich. Maybe some people might think it has buttery descriptors. We say its fruit forward and that the oak is very integrated into the wine. Probably texturally it seems buttery."

Wine Tasting NotesRombauer Vineyards Carneros Chardonnay is a rich wine filled with aromas of mango, pineapple, apples and spice. On the palate are crisp flavors of tropical fruit, integrated with rich vanilla from oak barrel aging. A memorable finish of light oak nuances and a delicious buttery tone linger on the palate.

Ripe pear, apple and honeydew melon flavors are shaded by spicy, toasty oak. A rich, creamy style. Full-bodied, with a touch of sweetness. Drink now through 2011. 40,000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2007 Rombauer Chardonnay 750ml
