2016 Chardonnay

Background

Named after the river which runs through our certified sustainable vineyards.

Certified Sustainable

Tinga Rio Reserve wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

Notes from the Winemaker

This wine has aromas of ripe tropical fruits like pineapple and hints of banana. These flavors are integrated with fine toasty notes and finishes with balanced fresh acidity.
