2016 Chardonnay


2016 Lo-Fi Chardonnay

Hand harvested and sustainably grown; Whole cluster pressed to tank. Settled 48 hours prior to racking to barrel. Fermented on the native yeasts, followed by partial malolactic by naturally occurring bacteria. No sulfur used at pressing. Upon completion of primary fermentation the wine was racked to amphora for aging and 25 ppm so2 added. Balance left in barrel. The wine was racked once prior to hand bottling. Total of 61 ppm so2 added without filtration in keeping with our minimalist (lo-fi) philosophy.

Ingredients: Hand harvested, sustainably farmed grapes, indigenous yeast, naturally occurring lactic acid bacteria and minimum effective SO2.
