Metallico is chardonnay in its purest form, unadorned by oak. Select clones from top growers display intense tropical fruit and mineral aromas.

Metallico is sourced from some of Monterey’s best vineyards. In 2019 we focused on Leavens and Double L, with a little fruit coming from Roger Rose. These vineyards are influenced by their proximity to the cold water of Monterey Bay, providing the perfect conditions for fruit forward, racy, and elegant Chardonnay.

Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed. After pressing, the juice was cold tank fermented, retaining the essential bright fruit and mineral characters. The wine was not allowed to go through a secondary malo-lactic fermentation.

Metallico’s aromatics are intense with pineapple, jasmine, and subtle vanilla. The palate has ripe fruit flavors of asian pear and lemon meringue. This wine encompasses a light-medium body with bright acidity and a long finish. It’s a perfect accompaniment to shellfish and lighter summertime fare.

93 Points
“Rounded aromas of Asian pear and soft peach are cut by sharp grapefruit pith and chalk on the vibrant and very fresh nose of this stainless-steel expression. The palate is very grippy in texture at first, slowly giving way to the more broad stone-fruit flavors.” - Matt Kettmann, February/March 2021




90 Points
“Pale yellow. Lively and sharply focused on the nose and in the mouth, displaying fresh Meyer lemon, pear and floral character. Silky and penetrating, with good heft and no rough edges. Tightens up on a long, spice-tinged finish that echoes the pear note.” - Josh Raynolds, October 2020
