2013 Chardonnay (Ravines)
Ravines, Chardonnay, Finger Lakes, NY 2013100% Chardonnay ELEGANT RICHNESS, RIPE GOLDEN DELICIOUS APPLE, WISPS OF BUTTER Husband and wife team Morten & Lisa Hallgren are dedicated to combining Old World winemaking traditions with New World innovation to produce unforgettable wines. Their Chardonnay is a perfect example of their unique take on modern winemaking. Twenty percent of the grapes underwent the appasimento process, in which they are partially dried in the sun on straw mats before being pressed. The final product speaks for itself. This is a bottle of purely satisfying richness with dense aromas of ripe golden delicious apples and dried figs. A full malolactic fermentation results in a creamy, plush texture and the lightest touch of butter. Serving Suggestion: One customer shyly suggested that this would pair well with eggs benedict and latkes with a side of applesauce. We agree.
