|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Metallico is chardonnay in its purest form, unadorned by oak. Select clones from top growers display intense tropical fruit and mineral aromas. Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed. After pressing, the juice was cold tank fermented, retaining the essential bright fruit and mineral characters. The wine did not go through a secondary malo-lactic fermentation. Metallico's aromatics are intense with Asian pear, green mango, and baked apple. The palate has ripe fruit flavors of lemon meringue and quince. This wine encompasses a light-medium body with bright acidity and a long finish. It's a perfect accompaniment to shellfish and lighter summertime fare.
Fresh aromas of plumeria and jasmine float over the hints of papaya on this tropical-scented bottling, which stays in a tight balance. There's a great grip to the sip, giving tension to the tuberose flavors, aided further by a zippy lime-peel acidity.
Lip-smacking, bright and focused, with Meyer lemon, tangerine, fresh ginger and green apple flavors that sing out on the crisp finish. Drink now.
Bright yellow. Tightly wound lemon pith and green apple on the nose and in the mouth. Shows sharp definition and picks up a bitter pear skin quality as it opens up. Finishes dry and nervy, with a lingering citrus fruit note and a late touch of spicy ginger.
