2018 Wrath Chardonnay, San Saba Vineyard
Wrath's flagship 2018 San Saba Vineyard Chardonnay utilizes only specifically selected barrels of clones from our estate vineyard, primarily Mt Eden, Kistler, and clone 96. 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 blend with a hint of cooking spices. Rich flavors of peach, ripe pineapple and buttery croissant find balance through bright acidity and a long, delicious finish.
