THE RIVERS CHARDONNAY
Australia | ABV 12.5%
The dry, sunny and warm climate which surrounds Australia’s Murray/Darling River system, provides a collision of perfect grape growing conditions. Sun to ripen. Ancient soils to provide character. Water to sustain. This allows yields to be managed so that the ideal blend of ripeness and concentration is achieved. The Rivers varietals deliver excellent flavours, varietal character and approachability to make them the perfect house pour wines.
Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety that originated in the Burgundy wine region in the east of France. It first came to Australia in 1832, but didn’t really take off until the 1950’s. Rivers Chardonnay is made in a fresh, clean, easy drinking style with minimal oak treatment.
