Wine Critics

“A bright and stoney chardonnay with clarity and beauty. Full body, bright and tangy acidity with lime and green pineapple character. Vertical tension to this. Long and flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling

“When you think of Chardonnay, do you ever consider Chile? Over the past decade or so a really cool thing has been happening throughout this country. Many vintners have begun to explore new and better quality regions for wine grape growing, including the cool growing area of the Casablanca Valley. This area has become a real player in producing some of the world’s top efforts. The 2015 Ritual Chardonnay is loaded with fruit, supple on the palate and frisky in the finish. This wine is a delicious treat! Yes, Chile’s time with Chardonnay is now and I recommend that you put this one on your radar screen. Medium straw color, beautiful, ripe core fruit aromas, medium bodied, supple, layered and lively on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; enticing flavors of ripe apple and peach, a touch of minerality and sweet citrus in the flavors; smooth aftertaste. (Tasted: February 26, 2016, San Francisco, CA)” – Wilfred Wong
