About This Item
Overview: Ramey Wine Cellars is dedicated to creating high quality, handcrafted wines with balance and richness from the area’s finest vineyards. Our philosophy is our process: It’s about respect for the land. Nature guides our process and we listen – closely. It’s about terroir. The vineyards are selected for their ability to sustainably produce the highest quality fruit. The soil must be right for the climate, which must be right for the terrain, which must be right for the varietal. It’s about harmony – the marriage of Old World methods with New World innovations. It’s about a family of wines crafted for the now, but even better with age. Bold, but in check, sensual, these are wines in perfect balance.
This Chardonnay shows great depth of flavor, length of finish, aromatic complexity, and a fine balance between richness and delicacy. The wine originates from cool sites in the Russian River Valley, with low vigor soil such as Goldridge Loam, planted between 1978 and 2006. The vineyards are mostly planted to UC Davis Clone 4, known for its prominent acidity and large clusters, with lesser percentages of Wente and aromatic clones like Rued.
Tasting Notes:In the mouth, it's medium-bodied, uber silky and minerally with great freshness and a long finish.
Pairing: Dungeness Crab Mac n Cheese, Baked Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Herbs
