Restless River 'Ava Marie' Chardonnay bears the name of its vineyard (which in turn was named after Craig and Anne's daughter), 2.06ha in size, and registered as a single vineyard. Specific grape parcels were hand-picked over a period of three weeks in February. After a gentle four hour squeeze, the oxidised juice was settled overnight, then racked into French oak barrels (10% new) and terracotta amphora. Natural fermentation took up to 30 days, after which the wine was aged on its lees for 11 months. It was given a light fining before being racked into a stainless steel tank, where it rested for a further three months before bottling. The wine was then bottle aged at 14°C for 18 months before release. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Citrus notes, predominantly lime with a hint or orange blossom. Soft whiffs of baking sweet spices.

Palate: Bright entry with scintillating notes of limes and ripe naartjie. Mid-palate has a beautiful silky texture and weight. Nuanced notes baked goods, like brioche buns.

Finish: Refreshing acidity with lingering notes of almonds and lime.
