Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay, 2018

Produced by Ranch Road Vineyards

Our Sonoma County Chardonnay is elegant and well-balanced. Unlike many rich and oaky California Chardonnays, our wine is lightly oaked and bright. With aromas of crisp pear, the Chardonnay balances ripe apple and honeysuckle with a silky and sweet density. We recommend pairing this Chardonnay with a salmon or lemon chicken, but any fish, poultry or hearty pasta dish will be a perfect accompaniment.

Loved by 5 Tastemakers
Chloe Jenkins Tastemaker

"I loved how this wine is so clean and crisp, yet still has very concentrated, zippy fruit notes that make a great pairing for turkey sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, or a day at the pool.  "

Ashton @thewineMBA Tastemaker

"I had friends over to taste through 3 wines while catching up on life, jobs, trips, moving, and everything in between…and after tasting through a few bottles, I have to say, @ranchroadvineyards Chardonnay was 100% the star of the show 😍 I mean, wow, I forgot how incredible this Chardonnay is - crisp with just a hint of smooth creaminess…but a honey creamy, not buttery at all. A delicious minerality, some stone fruit…yum yum yum. One that's worth a spot in your collection!"
