Scribe Winery's Carneros Chardonnay is fermented in concrete. It's never casked in oak and does not go through malolactic fermentation, meaning it is a pure expression of the Chardonnay grape varietal uninfluenced by oak and malolactic flavors. Its aromas include candied and green apple, which follow onto the palate along with notes of apple blossom and quince. It has a rich medium body with assertive acidity without oakiness or buttery flavors. It will pair beautifully with smoked or grilled fish, roasted root vegetables, and other seafood—or makes a great wine to enjoy on its own.
