Rebel Ridge Chardonnay 2020
Fresh yet full-bodied aromas of juicy lemon and vanilla, puffy pear and tropical fruits. The toasty, buttery creaminess that only the combination of California Chardonnay and American oak barrels can express gives the wine a wonderful roundness.
It is named Level Ridge after the place where three rebellious winemakers met. They were frustrated with the stagnant wine industry, where some global companies were driving up prices. They wanted a wine that was different, and Level Ridge was born.
The chief winemaker, who grew up in Valpolicella, Italy, wanted to make the most of California's many hours of sunshine to create a "new wine style that is less pretentious and more fruity," combining the winemaker's expertise in highlighting the fruit nuances of the grape with the winemaker's ability to make the most of the wine's natural characteristics, The wines express both the climate of California's Lodi region.
The Level Ridge series' etiquettes reflect the winemaker's desire to create wines that are unadorned, delicious, and fruity.
