Joel Gott California Unoaked Chardonnay


California: Monterey & Santa Barbara


100% Stainless Steel

Fruit from vineyards in Arroyo Seco and Santa Lucia Highlands, located within the larger marine-influenced Monterey County AVA, experience a cooler, extended growing season offering bright fruit flavors and well-balanced acidity. Within Santa Barbara, mineral-rich soils in the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley AVAs, along with warmer days and cooler nights, offer ideal growing conditions for rich, fruit-forward flavors. Blending fruit from these varied growing regions created a balanced,food-friendly wine.

Across California, the growing season experienced a dry winter with mild spring and summer temperatures followed by a late summer heatwave, resulting in an earlier-than-usual harvest. These conditions produced smaller, more concentrated fruit clusters resulting in great flavor and acidity making for a complex and well-balanced wine.

After harvest, fruit from each vineyard is whole cluster pressed to retain delicate fruit flavors before being fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the bright acidity and fruit flavors.
