From one of the cooler spots high in the Adelaide Hills, the orchard fruit notes are flecked with honey and hints of toasted hazlenuts though little oak is to be seen.
|Name||Ravenswood Lane Chardonnay|
The 1.8ha of Chardonnay was planted in 1998 in a very cold pocket by the tractor shed at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level. The vines are single cordon, spur pruned VSP and planted on their own roots in Ravenswood Lane’s hallmark ancient lithosols (ancient broken down limestone) topsoil over red podzolic clays. The vineyards are managed sustainably with great care taken to protect and preserve the unique microclimate andenvironment in which they are grown.
