Picked at night or early in the morning, these grapes underwent fermentation in stainless steel tanks and were freed from the common secondary malolactic fermentation which is a frequent sentence for Californian Chardonnay. The result is a fresh and bright unoaked Chardonnay that is more reminiscent of an aromatic white than its namesake. 3 Liters We are a winery that has historically eschewed the bland pedestrian commercialized varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay because of the popular, yet heavy headed winemaking style and the pretension that surrounds these wines’ ostentatious palates that they attract. So for us to induct said pedestrian wine into our House, we really needed to give him a thorough makeover. Et voila, Chardonnay we veered off the California standard by using steel tanks and neutral oak barrels; thereby preserving the true fruit characteristics of the Chardonnay grape. Perfect Pairings Unoaked chardonnay pairs well with braised scallops, pork tenderloin, roasted chicken or fresh pasta with olive oil and basil.
