The Wente Riva Range Chardonnay comes from a single vineyard in Arroyo Seco in Monterey, California. Because of its relatively cool climate, one of the best-known regions for Chardonnay cultivation. It is still produced from the Chardonnay clones that brought the Wente family from Burgundy to California at the beginning of the twentieth century.
The Riva Ranch Chardonnay was fermented 90% in barrique and matured for 10 months in these barrels 60% were new and 40% once used. The wood comes from France and America. 10% were fermented in the tank to get freshness in the final wine. In 2017, the result was an elegant wine with a creamy body and a surprisingly fine texture, its vanilla and spice notes give aromatic complexity, the taste and balance is wonderful.
