Aravina Estate Wildwood Ridge Reserve chardonnay 2014

INTRO

Aromas of white peach, nectarine and fresh cucumber with underlying spicy oak. 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.
This is the follow on vintage from the 2013 which won five trophies at the Perth Royal Wine Show 2014

Reviews

“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.”
95/100 –
WEST WEEKEND, RAY JORDAN, JUNE 2015

“Light, bright yellow hue and a fresh, clean aroma, which shows lemon citrus fruit and some smoky oak. The balance is good and the wine finishes clean and fairly dry. Very attractive in a ‘straight’, fruit-driven style.”

Continues the excellent recent form of chardonnays from this vineyard. All wild ferments with further time on lees to build complexity. It works well but doesn’t compromise the fine angular lines of what is a modern expression of the variety with plenty of Margaret River power. So poised and lively. Impressive.

WINEFRONT

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." 91 Pts - CAMPBELL MATTINSON, APRIL 20

JAMES HALLIDAY

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2016

"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."
