Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

14% abv

This is David Ramey’s calling card Chardonnay – from selected fruit from 15 vineyards. These are classic wines that show the characteristics of their region. These are cool sites with low vigor soil, which may be planted to a larger-clustered clone. They receive less new oak and less time in barrel than the single-vineyard wines, but otherwise are made identically to them. The wines have undergone full malolactic ferment after a primary ferment with natural yeasts. As with all Ramey wines these are bottled unfiltered.

“The 2017 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is another stellar wine, especially within its peer group. Fresh, nuanced and super-expressive, the 2017 is loaded with character. The 2017 is really vibrant today. Lemon confit, flowers and mint add to the wine’s energy.”

Ramey Wine Cellars was founded in 1996 by David Ramey and his wife Carla, after David had worked for almost two decades creating benchmark wines for such wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus Estate and Rudd Estate. Located just off the town square in Healdsburg, the winery is perfectly placed to make use of the great Sonoma and Carneros terroir famous for the quality of their Chardonnays.

Ramey's philosophy is to make hand-crafted wines that see the marriage of an terroir and Old World tradition with New World innovation and progress. Over the years, David has helped pioneer traditional, artisan winemaking techniques in California. His efforts have rippled through the winemaking community, helping to shape the way many wines in the United States are made today. His groundbreaking work with indigenous yeasts, sur lies aging and malolactic and barrel fermentation yielded a new California style that was more luscious and richer in nuance and tone than previously known. As a result, he created a benchmark style now emulated by many.
