2018 Wrath Fermata Chardonnay

"Fermata" means halted in Italian and this wine is so named because we halt the secondary fermentation at its halfway point.  This gives the wine richness but also preserves its acidity and energy.

The Chardonnay from our estate vineyard is consistently rich and luxurious. It owes its heightened concentration to our climate, complex soils and demanding farming practices. By halting the malolactic fermentation at 50%, our Fermata Chardonnay counterbalances this wine’s inherent richness with its own natural acidity. Our 2018 features powerful aromatics ranging from lemon and pineapple to toast and vanilla crème brûlée. The palate delivers viscosity, structure and a lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is sheltered in a nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, roughly 25 miles southeast of the town of Monterey. Our climate is heavily influenced by the morning fog and afternoon winds from the nearby Pacific Ocean. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our unusual climate allows us to produce ripe, concentrated wines of exceptional balance.
