2015 Wild Yeast Chardonnay

2015 Wild Yeast Chardonnay
2015 Wild Yeast Chardonnay

The fruit was handpicked and gently whole cluster pressed. Upon settling for two days, the clear juice was racked directly to oak barrels where it was allowed to ferment with its own wild yeasts, which were naturally present on the grapes or in the environment. The wild fermentation took longer to get going and the results were well worth the wait! The wine was aged on the yeast sediment for ten months, where it underwent the process of Sur Lie, stirred bi-weekly, to increase the mouth feel and body of the wine.

The wine boasts a rich mineral element and is medium bodied with oak that is present but not overpowering. The barrels we used did not go through malolactic fermentation, giving a leaner, crisper finish. This wine is bursting with citrus, pear, lemon, green apple and the characteristic Kestrel minerality.
