Vintage Notes: Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started at Scribe on August 14th with rosé of Pinot Noir and ended with the Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.

Winemaking Notes:
The Chardonnay was harvested by band and whole cluster pressed. After 24 hours of cold setting, the juice was racked off gross lees to begin fermenting. The wine underwent native fermentation in a stainless steel tank and was bottled on November 18th, 2019 with 15.9 g/L of residual sugar. Fermentation finished in bottle over the following weeks. No disgorgement necessary.

Tasting Notes: This Chardonnay Pét Nat has notes of lemon peel, kiwi, green melon and and chamomile.
