Pali, 2019 Chardonnay 'Pali Vineyard Natural'

About The Wine

We first experimented with wild fermentations in 2008 with Chardonnay. Eventually, wild fermented Chardonnay and Pinot Noir became small but essential aromatic components to all of our Pali cuves, adding freshness and depth when blended together with inoculated barrels prior to bottling. In 2019, we bottled our first Wild Series wine on our Pali label. Today, Pali's Wild Series Chardonnay is made from sustainably farmed grapes grown on Pali Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. This wine is fermented using wild, naturally occurring yeasts and without the use of conventional winemaking tools and additives including sulfur throughout its elevage. It is fermented in small lots, punched down by hand multiple times, and then aged in entirely neutral French oak barrels for 90 days. This wine is unfined and unfiltered and will naturally develop sediment.

The AVA

With a total area of 30,720 acres, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is home to over 59 vineyards, totaling 2,700 hundred acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and 18 other cool climate wine grape varieties. The combination of a purely East/West maritime throat, poor marine-based soils, elevated calcium in the soil and the Pacific’s cooling influence through fog, wind and moderating summer heat combine to form one of the world’s best cool-climate viticulture areas for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
