Wild Ferment is our unique interpretation of San
Luis Obispo County Chardonnay. Our Pacic
Ocean-adjacent sites provide naturally stressed
vine conditions with fog and wind serving as
ideal temperature and moisture control
respectively. We leave them mostly untended
through the growing season to encourage
canopy growth and subdue overt ripeness.
Our fruit is whole-cluster pressed before its
fermentation by native micro-ora. Kept on its
lees with no stirring or mixing, it naturally
progresses through alcoholic and partial
malolactic fermentation.
The 2014 Wild Ferment Chardonnay highlights a
beautiful vintage with generous aromatics of
white pineapple, wet stones and pears.
The vibrantly fresh palate hints of the same, with
lemon meringue, guava, and graham cracker in
its creamy nish, cut with brisk acidity.
