Wine Appearance

Like the aromas, the flavors of the Ravens Wood Vintners Blend Chardonnay are primarily citrus but there is also some apple combined with spice and butter. It's dry, but the acidity is lively. The oak characteristics of this full-bodied Chardonnay are unmistakable, but not too strong so this is one Chardonnay that might appeal to both fans of oaky Chardonnays and those who would prefer something unoaked. There is a noticeable alcohol burn when the Ravens Wood Vintners Blend Chardonnay gets a bit too warm, so pay attention to the temperature when you serve and drink this white wine.

Food Pairing

Pairing Ravens Wood Chardonnay with Cheeses

  • Cheddar Cheese: Ravens Wood Chardonnay is a neutral pairing with cheddar cheese, though some might find the cheese becomes slightly more bitter.
  • Swiss Cheese: Ravens Wood Chardonnay makes swiss cheese more aromatic, creating a decent pairing to try.
  • Aged Gouda: The Ravens Wood Chardonnay causes the aged Gouda to become nutty and sharper, making this a very good pairing.
  • Aged Parmesan: Ravens Wood Chardonnay becomes spicier and more complex in the presence of aged Parmesan.
  • Fresh Camembert: The Camembert makes the Ravens Wood Chardonnay smoother and even easier to drink.

Pairing Ravens Wood Chardonnay with Main Dishes

  • Shrimp Scampi: This is a fairly neutral pairing, with neither the shrimp scampi nor the Ravens Wood Chardonnay changing much.
