"Fermata" is Italian for halted.  Wrath's Fermata Chardonnay is so named because we utilize lots in which the malolactic fermentation has been halted at about 50 percent.  We believe this gives the resulting wine more precision and versatility.  Blended with Mt. Eden, Kistler, Wente and Clone 4 from our estate vineyard, the wine ages for 11 months in French oak, 20 percent of which is new.  The aromatics here are bright and assertive, characterized by lemon, Meyer lemon and lime.  The palate offers mouth-watering acidity with clean citrus, a touch of creamy lemon meringue and a long, pleasant flinty finish.
