2019 Geppetto Chardonnay
This wine was made very simply. The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed to an air bag press. The expressed juice was pumped protectively to tank and settled for 36 hours. The clear juice was racked (pumped) to barriques and a stainless steel tank where the controlled temperature (15 to 18 degrees C) ferment took place. A small component was allowed to complete a malolactic ferment to add a degree of complexity. Following ferment the wine was aged for 10 months on gross lees before filtration and bottling. Bottled Feb 2020.
