Ravines Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Stunning cool-climate Chardonnay with complex aromas of melon, pear, fig, and hazelnut. French oak barrel aging adds butter and toast flavors balanced with a fresh acidity." - Ravines "Probably the finest Finger Lakes Chardonnay being produced, the 2012 vintage is a worthy follow up to the very successful 2011. Ravines partially allows the grapes to shrivel before vinification, which coaxes some additional concentration and phenolics out of a very cool climate. There's oak, but it is well integrated and leads to a toasty, autolytic note that is pleasant. Not over done and not trying to be too much, while staying fresh and clean. A joy to drink." - East Coast Wine Buyer Tom Reissmann
