    Winemaker's Notes:

    With a light greenish-yellow color, the Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2011 has a fresh, expressive nose with tropical fruit aromas fused with mineral notes and a subtle touch of toast and brioche from the barrel aging, which greatly enhances complexity. On the palate, a zingy acidity balances out its lush, creamy texture.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A chardonnay with sliced apple, honey and papaya character with hints of cream. Full body, bright acidity and a long and intense finish. Creamy and tangy. Wonderful fruit and acid contrast. Only 5% new oak barrels here.

    The 2011 Wild Ferment Chardonnay sourced from Aconcagua is fermented in French oak, 5% new, then aged for 10 months. It has a taut, minimalist bouquet with citric peel and freshly cut lime, while the palate offers ripe mango and passion fruit, crisp acidity and a clean, apricot and peach tinged finish. This is a fine, flavorsome Chardonnay.

    Pale straw color, medium body, leggy. Big, complex nose: lemon, apple-cider, yeast, oak? Big flavors; there's decent fruit but the overall balance is on the tart side, some apple flavors, just a hint of desirable bitterness - a bit short though, more crisp than rich. There may be hint of carbon dioxide suggesting secondary fermentation may be underway; I think this is a risk in wild-ferment wines and a reason I ascribe them no special merit. This is a screw-cap-closure wine so it should not be held past a year or so and this wine wouldn't improve with age anyway. Nice enough: crisp, tart, flavorful and aromatic but not distinguished and overpriced at $15.
