I picked up this Joel Gott Unoaked Chardonnay in Port St. Joe last weekend. Usually, California Chardonnays are too oaky for me but this one was aged in stainless steel and DID NOT undergo malolactic fermentation which results in a more buttery flavor.
This wine is 100% Chardonnay with grapes sourced from Monterey, Sonoma and Napa.
Our Chablis-style Chardonnay does not undergo malolactic fermentation and is aged in stainless steel. This style of winemaking preserves the natural acidity, and purity and flavors of the fruit, resulting in an elegant, naturally balanced wine.
