Restless River ‘Ava Marie’ Chardonnay 2018


This Chardonnay bears the name of its vineyard, 2.06ha in size, and is registered as a single Vineyard. Slopes are south and east facing.Shallow top soils vary from iron rich rocks to a light sandy gravel. Below this is decomposed granite clay.

In our opinion among the top Chardonnays in South Africa – the tighness of palate and ease of power is exhilarating. Minimal new oak (7%) allows the site and vintage to shine through. Remarkable

Restless River is synonymous with authentic, elegant wine. Craig and Anne Wessels own and run this small family estate in the cool Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Craig is committed to absolute site expression and a minimalist approach. Each vineyard on their farm is registered as a Single Vineyard and the wines are named after the vineyards.

Being terroir driven, the focus is on 100% single varietal wine: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. They also occasionally release a wine called Wanderlust – which changes every year and lays outside the core tenants of Restless River.
