The 2016 Wild Ferment Chardonnay highlights another beautiful vintage with delicately pretty honeysuckle, pear, and green apple aromatics. Bright and refreshingly dry, the palate carries honey-mineral notes and finishes with firm acidity and juicy pear-apple fruit.
Wild Ferment is our unique interpretation of Central Coast Chardonnay. Pacific Ocean adjacent sites provide naturally stressed vine conditions with fog and wind serving as ideal temperature and moisture control respectively. We leave them mostly untended through the growing season to encourage canopy growth and subdue overt ripeness.
