2017 Wrath 'Fermata' Chardonnay, Monterey   

“Fermata” is Italian for halted. Wrath’s Fermata Chardonnay is so named because we utilize lots in which the malolactic fermentation has been halted at about 50 percent. We believe this gives the resulting wine more precision and versatility. Wrath’s Fermata Chardonnay is so named because they utilize lots in which the malolactic fermentation has been halted at about 50 percent. Blended with equal parts Clone 4, Wente, and Mount Eden clones from our estate vineyard, the wine ages for 11 months in French oak, which starting with the 2011, has been brought down to 25 percent new (from 50 percent in 2010). The aromatics here are bright and assertive, characterized by lemon, Meyer lemon, and lime. The palate offers mouth-watering acidity with clean citrus, a touch of lemon meringue, and a long, pleasantly flinty, finish.
