About Ridge ... The Ridge approach is straightforward, find the most intense and flavourful grapes, guide the natural process, draw all the fruit's richness into the wine. Decisions on when to pick, when to press, when to rack, what varietals and what parcels to include and when to bottle, are based on taste. To retain the nuances that increase complexity, Ridge winemakers handle the grapes and wine as gently as possible. There are no recipes, only attention and sensitivity.
96 Points Vinous ... The 2018 Lytton Springs is magnificent. Elegant, layered and so complete, the 2018 has a lot to offer. Sweet red cherry, red plum, blood orange, spice, mint and rose petal open up in the glass. Bright acids and beams of tannin give the wine its vibrant energy.
