A dynamic chardonnay, bursting with baked apples, lemon zest and cloves. Restrained use of French oak, creamy textural components and saline minerality provide lovely precision and verve along a lengthy finish. Since 2002, we’ve used the Passito method to concentrate fruit and balance the influence of oak.
Ravines Chardonnay is made with a process dating back to the Roman times: appasimento. Chardonnay grapes are partially dried in the sun, yielding a wine with lush aromas of pear, fig, citrus and hazelnut. As a cool climate Chardonnay this wine expresses fresh fruit flavors, a distinct mineral tinge, hints of butter and lightly toasted French Oak.
