SKU: 20MCH7

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

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 did not go through a secondary malo-lactic fermentation.

Metallico’s aromatics are intense with Asian pear, green mango, and baked apple. The palate has ripe fruit flavors of lemon meringue and quince. 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.

"Fresh aromas of plumeria and jasmine float over the hints of papaya on this tropical-scented bottling, which stays in a tight balance. There’s a great grip to the sip, giving tension to the tuberose flavors, aided further by a zippy lime-peel acidity." - Matt Kettmann, April 2022

"I think a little oak serves Chardonnay well, and I often find that no oak versions lack depth and seem simple when compared to carefully oaked versions.  Not so here, where tropical fruit joins apple and lemon on a palate with good weight and a crisp finish — I trust some time on lees helped to flesh out the mid palate and keep the flavors on the rich side of bright.  Throw in the nice price here and I'm sold." - Rich Cook, March 2022

"Aged for 4 months in stainless steel this is a bright and racy Chardonnay with elevated acidity and bright green apple, underripe pear, blanched almonds and some tropical notes. Light bodied in structure and easy drinking, this would be a great summertime pool wine to enjoy on a hot day."  - Jeremy Young, January 2022
