Winemaker Notes

The unoaked wine is bright and crisp. Aromas of citron and pineapple combine to add a subtle tropical note to the nose. The palate counters with lively stone fruit and citrus and a noticeable but balanced acidity.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

Also all from the cooler Monterey County, the 2017 Chardonnay Unoaked EX offers solid notes of buttered stone fruits, white flowers, and hints of toast. It's rounded, with plenty of fruit and a great finish, all making for a beautiful Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years.

Wrath Wrath Winery Winery Image
Located on the River Road Wine Trail in Northern Monterey County, Wrath Wines estate produces small lots of site-driven wines from their 72 acre estate vineyard and other respected properties within the nearby Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate San Saba Vineyard was first planted in 1975 and when owners, Michael Thomas and his mother Barbara Lemmon, purchased the property from Michael’s stepfather in 2007, they set out to dramatically change the estate’s wine and viticulture program to produce terroir-inspired wines

Michael worked closely with viticulturist Steve McIntyre and winemaker, Sabrine Rodems, to create a program focused on producing small lots of wine that depict the influence of land, weather and winemaking. To preserve the local ecosystem., Wrath developed a sustainable farming program that is certified by the CCVT. In addition to protecting the local environment, the winery team believes it enables them to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to the local terroir.

The name for the winery was inspired by both the ‘wrath’ of nature and the ‘wrath’ of the creative process that winemakers must have when crafting wine.

Central Coast, California

A geographic and climatic paradise for grape vines, Monterey is a part of the greater Central Coast AVA and contains within it five smaller sub-appellations, including Arroyo Seco, San Lucas, San Bernabe, Hames Valley and the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. The climate is relatively warm but tempered by cool, coastal winds, allowing the regions in Monterey County an exceptionally long growing season. Bud break often happens two weeks sooner and harvest tends to be two weeks later compared to other surrounding regions.

Monterey’s coastal side, where the cooling ocean fog allows grapes to develop a perfect sugar-acid balance, excels in the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Warmer, inland subzones are home to fleshy, concentrated and full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

Chardonnay, covering about 40% of vineyard acreage, is the most widely planted grape in all of Monterey County.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
