Ravine Unoaked Chardonnay 2020
This Chardonnay is estate grown and bottled using Chardonnay Musque Clone 809 grapes. This wine is a continuation of last years “Clonal Project” where each clone was picked and fermented individually. Hand-picked, whole cluster pressed, zero oak, zero malolactic fermentation, this wine was picked for freshness and flavour.
Our Unoaked Chardonnay is a lovely pale straw colour. The nose on this wine is dominant with notes of pear, lanolin, lemon and ripe honey dew. A soft oily mouthfeel rounds out your palate and the wine finishes with a quenching refreshing note. Balance between the freshness and acidity was achieved with weekly lees stirring for 6 months, resulting in an underlying creaminess.
This Chardonnay matches beautifully with most seafood dishes, oysters, light fare, cheeses and pastas.
