Carol's 2014 Chardonnay comes from the same Wild vineyard as the Wild Thing Zinfandel. Very little oak, and neutral oak at that makes this Chard a bright, tropical pleasure that finishes crisp and fresh. Non-traditional in style, Wild Thing Chardonnay is playful and fun. Remember: you are what you drink...

Winemaker Notes:

Beautiful nose of tropical fruits—pineapple, banana, papaya—complemented by lovely honeysuckle floral lift from Viognier. Soft creamy mouthfeel, punctuated by a sliver of bright acidity. Very food compatible with chicken, pork or fish—try Thai flavors!

Harvest Date:

September 12 & 15, 2014

Destemmed to press and fermented by WILD yeast, (no yeast inoculation done)

Cellar Storage/Aging:

70% stainless steel fermented at about 53ºF, 30% barrel fermented and stirred weekly sur lie. No Malo-lactic fermentation, so it is crisply finished.
