Riva Ranch is the name of the Wente family's vineyard in Arroyo Seco, where they have been growing Chardonnay since the 1960's. Wente Vineyards was the first California winery to produce a wine labeled as Chardonnay in 1936. The cool growing season and the deep gravelly soil ripen the Chardonnay perfectly. Aged in oak for 8 months.
Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay is a medium- bodied Chardonnay that has a rich, golden color and aromas and flavors of honey, graham, cinnamon and light floral notes, balanced by subtle oak, butter and vanilla from barrel aging. It has a round mouthfeel and a long, fruity finish.
