Here’s one for the natural wine crowd — a chardonnay fermented on its skins and bottled without filtration, stabilization or added sulfites. The result is a slightly cloudy, mildly tannic and “chewy” wine with noticeable grip on the palate. Flavors of bananas, crisp Bosc pears, toasted brioche and wild herbs are carried by fine acidity. The wine is nearly as playful as the label. Sustainable.
