Populis, Macerated Chardonnay
Napa Valley, California, 2020 (750 ml)
Populis is a partnership between two graduates from the prestigious oenology school at UC Davis. They are determined to create natural wines that express the Northern California terroir without the funky ‘natty’ flavor profiles. They believe that a quality wine always starts with quality grapes, so they ensure that all of their grapes come from the most prestigious vineyards using sustainable and organic practices. These Chardonnay grapes actually come from a partnership between them and the Trefethen vineyards of Oak Knoll, Napa Valley!
Once they get these grapes, they juice them and let the juice sit with the skins long enough to extract a rich color and slight tannin structure. The palate is perfectly balanced with dried fruit flavors matching a ripe citrus acidity! This full, rich orange wine finishes with a slight tart note, inviting you in for another sip!
