To all Wine Exchangers,
Man, the hits just keep coming.  When we were offered this amazing deal on what was already one of the finest Chardonnay deals on the planet, we were frankly speechless.
…for a second. Then we calmly blurted out, “We’ll take it all!”
Some of you may be familiar with the Ritual Chardonnay Casablanca Valley 2015 since we trotted out the original release of this wine as an e-mail offer back in 2016.
We wrote:

Ritual winemaker Rodrigo Soto and his Burgundy-inspired wines are back…and this time we’re talking Chardonnay.

What he’s doing in these cool-climate vineyards in the Casablanca Valley is unprecedented, producing character-filled wines, full of energy, at prices half to a third his competition.
Who doesn’t like a deal?
And let me tell you, this Chardonnay rubs elbows with prime Sonoma and Central Coast single vineyard wines that cost substantially more.
There’s the fact that the wine is made with minimal intervention using “old world” winemaking techniques such as whole cluster and native fermentation.
Or perhaps it’s the organic and biodynamic farming practices in which the estates vineyards are 100% sustainable with low impact methods.
Grapes are hand harvested at night, maximizing freshness and vibrancy with whole cluster pressing. A portion of the fruit undergoes whole-cluster fermentation in concrete eggs, increasing texture and fruit flavors.  The rest ferments in oak barrels, delivering structure, complexity and silkiness.  After fermentation, the lees is stirred regularly, in order to achieve maximum expression as the wine ages in a combo of concrete eggs, new 400 liter French barrels and neutral oak.
This Chardonnay has that elusive combination of fruit richness with a crispy, crunchy snap that brings you back for glass after glass.
James Suckling, in one of his pioneering South American reports, wrote the wine was, ”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. 93 points.”

Well, nothing has changed, except the wine has gotten better and the price has gotten much, much lower.
Originally $22 retail ($15.98 was our already industry-low price at the time), we can now trot out this gorgeous bottle of 93-point Chard for only $9.98 while supplies last.  Believe me, a better, higher-scoring bottle of $10 Chardonnay on the planet you will not be able to find.

Happy Hunting….
