2017 Wrath Chardonnay, San Saba Vineyard
Wrath's flagship 2017 San Saba Vineyard Chardonnay utilizes only specifically selected barrels of three clones from our estate vineyard. During production, we allow certain lots to ferment using native yeasts while other lots are inoculated with Montrachet yeast. This adds to the wine's signature complexity. These lots go through a secondary fermentation, ML or malolactic, while aging in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new oak. Aromas of apple and apricot blend with a hint of cooking spices. Rich flavors of peach, ripe pineapple and shortbread find balance through bright acidity and a long, delicious finish.
