|Appellation||Central Coast, California|
This is characterized by being a drought year, which highlights the minerality in this wine. Wines from these years typically exhibit an interesting saline component “underneath” the fruit. On the palate, the Rabble Chardonnay has luscious mouthfeel with bright acidity. The flavor profile begins with citrus, pear, and transitions to a tropical laden finish driven with pineapple and guava.
These are single varietal wines, uncorrupted and pure. These wines embrace characteristics of the grape (Tempranillo that tastes like Tempranillo), the place (wind and frosts of Santa Maria; extreme diurnal shifts of Paso Robles) and the mindset (how sad to think that nature speaks and mankind doesn’t listen). Labels are renditions of historical wood block prints, textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored.
