Margerum Wine Company

2016 Fonte, Sta. Rita Hills


A Burgundy blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris.
La Encantada Vineyard (76%)
La Rinconada (12%)
Donnachadh (12%)

Partially inoculated for malolactic fermentation and battonaged for 3 months.

A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris picked for a balance of flavor and acidity.  Barrel fermented in our 55 degree winery, inoculated for malolactic fermentation and battonaged for 3 months.  Aged 6 months sur-lie in 1 year old demi-muid, a neutral puncheon and a bit in stainless steel.

Bartlett pear, tropical fruits, baked brie, raw almonds, and a hint of vanilla bean with lemon zest gives salivating acidity and a creaminess that will increase over time.
