The Metzker Family Estates’ 2015 Laurent Chardonnay comes from the Ritchie Vineyard in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. This vineyard boasts legendary status and is widely regarded to be among the very best Chardonnay vineyards in California. For more than forty years, this unique site has been farmed with passion and attention to detail by Kent Ritchie, and it is this authenticity and dedication that especially drew Mike Metzker and winemaker Melissa Apter Castro to this property. The 2015 Laurent Chardonnay is beautifully opulent with a fresh bouquet of citrus fruit and nutty tons from the perfectly integrated French Oak. In the mouth, the minerality and acidity balance the fullness of the fruit and leave a long-lasting finish.
