This Chardonnay hails from the Santa Ynez Valley in California, embodying a charming equilibrium. The grapes undergo a unique aging process, with a portion maturing in aged barrels and the rest in amphoras, resulting in a wine that's both sleek and intricately structured. It boasts a refreshing burst of lemon-laden fruit alongside delicate mineral undertones, underpinned by a superb acidity. The oak influence is delicately woven, while the texture gains a silken quality courtesy of partial malolactic fermentation.
The Lo-Fi approach is marked by its utilization of neutral barrels, reliance on naturally occurring yeasts, and minimal sulphite additions. This commitment to simplicity and authenticity translates into a Chardonnay that candidly embodies the essence of the new world.
Pairs well with creamy dishes, oily fish, rich seafood and poultry.
