2020 Wrath Fermata Chardonnay
With its rich, layered personality, this all-estate-grown chardonnay reflects Monterey's longer growing season. Grape clusters have approximately 2 months longer on the vine than northern growing areas like Napa/Sonoma which results in flavors of vanilla and pineapple that are enhanced with toast and caramel from being aged in French oak. Because fermentation is halted at the halfway point, acidity is retained and gives this rich wine beautiful energy and balance. The finish displays lingering creme brulee, vanilla, and lemon that pull you back in for another taste.
