Wrath’s flagship 2014 San Saba Vineyard Chardonnay utilizes only selected barrels of clones from our estate vineyard. We feel that combining lots fermentated with native yeasts along with lots inoculated with Montrachet yeast adds to this wine’s signature complexity. These lots go through ML while aging in French oak barrels (67% new).  Aromas of apple and apricot blend with a hint of butterscotch.  A lush palate of peach, ripe pineapple, and shortbread finds balance through bright acidity and leads to a long, delicious finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is set in a sheltered nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate consists of 72 acres of which 67.75 are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Falanghina. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our soils, Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravely Sandy Loam, provide a low-vigor, well-draining, disease- and pest-free medium for our vines. They also impart a subtle mineral quality to our wines. To preserve our local ecosystem, we have worked with viticultural consultant Steve McIntyre to develop a sustainable farming program, certified by CCVT, tailored to our estate. In addition to protecting the local environment, we believe it allows us to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to our terroir.
