2016 White Wine of the Year

We are so honored to announce that the 2014 Ram’s Gate Estate Chardonnay has been awarded ‘White Wine of the Year’ by Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine!

White Wine of the Year:

“Just as was the case in considering the best red wines reviewed in 2016, there were several stunning Chardonnays that finished in a dead heat in the race for top honors among the year’s most memorable whites. Ram’s Gate and Chasseur are pre-eminent Chardonnay producers and regular recipients of high accolades, and Moone-Tsai’s lovely Charles Heintz Vineyard bottling reaffirms our strong belief that its maker’s name deserves to be much better known.”

“Among the bigger and richer Chardonnays of the Ram’s Gate lot, but a wine that is as composed and carefully balanced as it is weighty and well-filled, this mouthfilling effort teams plentiful, ripe apple fruit with a tailored complement of sweet oak and subtle suggestions of lees. It is a complete and involving wine at the moment, and it will disappoint no one who opts for hasty drinking, yet it has a rare sense of reserve that augers well for the future and makes a most compelling case for another few years of waiting.Congratulations to our winemaking team for earning this honor for the second year running.”
