Chardonnay
100% Shar-do-NAY
Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.

The Martinelli family’s focus on terroir doesn’t stop in the vineyard. They have a hands-off approach that includes natural yeast fermentation and aging in the barrel for 10 months, unfined and unfiltered.  

Martinelli’s wines are defined by the quality of their fruit, balance of personality, richness, energy, along with a sense of place and respect for the terroir.
