M&J Becker - Chardonnay - 2015
Manchester Ridge, Mendocino County, California
This wine was sourced by hand in the early hours to retain freshness from 990m elevation on Gold Ridge sandy loam soils. 80% wholebunch fruit and 20% destemmed are pressed and left to macerated on skins for 24 hours before being transferred to neutral French barriques. Here the wine is allowed to complete primary and secondary fermentation without the addition of any factory adds and zero battonage.
Approx 888 bottles produced (limited supply in Australia).
The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with 60ppm sulphur added.
