2021 Metallico Un-Oaked Chardonnay
Metallico is chardonnay in its purest form, unadorned by oak. Select clones from top growers display intense tropical aromas and minerality.
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 malolactic fermentation.
Metallico’s aromatics are intense with white peach, citrus blossom, and pineapple. The palate has ripe fruit flavors of green apple 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.
