This fine-tuned Chardonnay was sourced exclusively from grapes grown at the Mettler Vineyard in the California delta town of Lodi.
Production: 350 cases
The grapes were harvested and then wholecluster pressed. Barrel-fermented with native yeast in French oak, the wine stays in barrels for 6 months prior to bottling. It does not go through malolactic fermentation.
Blessed with crisp acidity that supports a core of lush-textured citrus, apple, pear and quince flavors.
