Ridge's Estate Chardonnay is one of the best buys in California. 
A gem from the Santa Cruz Mountains, it's got complex fruit aromas and flavors, firm acidity, leesy texture and a mineral streak that make this a Chardonnay that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with your next meal. Get the new vintage before the scores come out!

95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2019 Chardonnay Estate offers a beautiful sense of reduction and minerality in its stone fruits, toasted brioche, and crushed stone-like aromas and flavors. A kiss of green almonds and salinity emerges with time in the glass, and this is a beautiful, classic Chardonnay from this team that will evolve gracefully for a good 20 years or more."

91 Points Wine Spectator: "Big and rich, with concentrated baked pear, apple pastry and glazed apricot flavors that are luscious and well-spiced. The creamy finish is loaded with buttery plushness. Drink now through 2024."

previous vintage 95 points Robert Parker: "The Chardonnay Estate is an impeccable, classy wine layered with bright citrus, flowers and just a touch of sweetness from the oak. Crushed rocks and lime peel add complexity on the textured, long finish.  None of the blocks were designated for the Monte Bello bottling, all of the fruit went into the Estate. This is a stunningly pure wine from Ridge. I came back to the 2009 Estate after having tasted all of the reds and the wine showed beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019."
