Chardonnay - 809
Description: ENTAV-INRA® clonal material offers a guarantee of quality and authenticity, which can be tracked back to the original source plants located in the vast repository that ENTAV holds in its quarantine facility in the South of France. IS CLONE 809 USED TO MAKE FLAGSHIP WINES? WINES WHICH SCORE WITH NATIONAL CRITICS?
Reviewed By Leo Winemaker
"Clone 809 is a Muscat flavoured Chardonnay clone developed by ENTAV-INRA®. "In France this clone is highly regarded and imparts lifted floral characters to the wine and could well make a valuable contribution to un-wooded chardonnay blends from both cool and warm climates." I would like to know whether this is a replacement or equivalent to the Sees clone which used to be used to make some of the better Peter Michael wines in Califoria. This is a clone sold in Australia. Seee www.yalumbannursery.com.
