2020 Wrath Chardonnay, San Saba Vineyard
Wrath's flagship 2020 San Saba Vineyard Chardonnay utilizes only specifically selected barrels of clones from our estate vineyard: Mt. Eden, Kistler and Wente. During production, we allow certain lots to ferment using native yeasts while other lots are innoculated 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, 30% of which are new oak. The nose has hints of Gala apple with baking spices. Rich flavors of pineapple, buttery croissant and more spice are balanced with bright acidity and a long, delicious finish.
