Mindego Ridge is a vineyard-owned winery near the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountain range, 8 miles from the Pacific in the same area as Ridge and Mount Eden Vineyards. This is a rich and mouth-filling with bright natural acidity and an attractive creaminess. Lemon candies, caramel, spiced green apple, kiwi and finally a faint lemon bitters note move from the mid-palate to the end of the 25 second finish.
About Mindego Ridge
Made by Ehren Jordan at his Failla Winery in Napa Valley. Like Failla and Mount Eden Chardonnays, the Mindego Ridge is a rich California style Chardonnay from an ideal, cool-climate, elevated, coastal vineyard.
