Ravines Chardonnay, Finger Lakes - 2020

Item # 21715 750mL

A Burgundian Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes that shows lovely, nuanced orchard fruit on the nose and delightful plumpness on the palate. The wine is nicely balanced and a delightful rendition of the grapes. As a cool climate Chardonnay this wine expresses fresh fruit flavors, a distinct mineral tinge, hints of butter and lightly toasted French Oak.
