Aravina Estate Wildwood Ridge Reserve Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes

The palate is dry with a mealy texture. Medium-bodied, this wine is tightly structured and displays a vibrant citrus and nectarine fruit intensity. The fruit is aptly supported by spicy French oak leading to a persistent finish.

Reviews and Accolades

"Attractive modern style made from long-established vines grown in the north of Margaret River. Glassy mid-straw in colour and perfumed with pineapple and lemon aromatics, it has a silky palate with tropical fruit, quality oak sitting underneath extended length and cleansing finish. 13% alf. Pity about the label - look for a change soon. Try with crunchy deep-fried dhufish wings."

Aravina Estate Wildwood Ridge Reserve Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2014 Vintage) says
Richer style of chardonnay out of Margaret River. Straw-yellow in colour. Rich and slippery-smooth with peach and nectarine flavours sizzling though the palate, backed by limey acidity and bolstered by toasty oak. No shortage of deliciousness.

The Wine Front
Ray Jordan (2014 Vintage) says
Continues the excellent chardonnays of late from this winery. All wild ferments, with further time on lees to build complexity. It works well, but doesn't compromise the fine lines of what is a modern expression of chardy with plenty of Margaret River power. So poised and lively. Impressive.
Now to 2020
James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
From the oldest vines on the estate, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild-fermented. ‘Underlying spicy new oak’. Has what it takes: vibrant white peach, nectarine and grapefruit, neatly balanced/integrated French oak, and squeaky/grippy (in the best sense) acidity. 13% alc.
