Metallico's aromatics are intense with apricot, nectarine, and fuji apple. The palate has ripe fruit flavors of tangerine, green apple, and a streak of minerality. Crisp, food-friendly acidity keeps this special wine refreshing and bright. A perfect accompaniment to shellfish and lighter summertime fare.
Metallico is Chardonnay in the purest form, without an overlay of oak or malolactic fermentation to mask any of its fruit expression. Aromatics, intense fruit character and bright acidity are the goals here. This vintage of Metallico is composed of fruit from the Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco, and Monterey appellations.
