2020 Metallico Un-Oaked Chardonnay
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.

"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
