2018 Adelsheim, Chardonnay, Ribbon Springs (RT93+) Every detail is ramped up in the Ribbon Springs Chardonnay, harvested from one of their LIVE-certified vineyards. Here the malolactic fermentation and oak aging is higher, while maintaining the magic touch of wine maker Gina Hennen. Balance is everything. Deeply nuanced with notes of Golden Delicious apples, yellow peach, gunflint and a dollop of crème fraiche. Time in the glass prompts gravely notes reminiscent of a fine white burgundy. The texture is rich, round and lush with a ling, taunting finish. Wonderfully crafted, this is a beautiful chardonnay that represents its origins in a first-class manner. Drink now-2028+
