Mineral & Textured

Scribe Winery in Sonoma, Calif. produces vibrant, terroir-driven wines. The winery– founded in 2007 on a property that pioneered pre-prohibition Sonoma Valley winemaking– is managed by fourth-generation California farmers and brothers, Andrew and Adam Mariani.

Like many of Scribe's wines, the Skin Fermented Chardonnay started as an experiment. When one of their Chardonnay clones were not cooperating with the others in the blending process, they isolated them and tried something slightly different. Fermented on the skins for 101 days in concrete, this traditional (and resurgent) winemaking process adds the necessary colour, texture and structure to create a delicate balance against the clone's pronounced floral and tropical fruit notes. The result is an expressive golden-hued wine, with a stony grip and herbal texture to the fine, bright and precise citrus and green apple fruit, in a shorter 500 ml bottle, that has earned its place as a staple, annual Scribe release. Not your average California Chardonnay but one not to be missed! 

Enjoy with Morrocan inspired dishes.

About the Winery

Scribe Winery

Scribe Winery in Sonoma, California, produces vibrant, terroir-driven wines.
The winery–founded in 2007 on a property that pioneered pre-prohibition Sonoma Valley winemaking–is managed by fourth-generation California farmers and brothers, Andrew and Adam Mariani. Andrew and Adam believe that the best wines are a result of a healthy relationship between man and nature, and that a vineyard managed in harmony with the greater ecosystem results in more site-specific wines that represent a sense of time and place. When vinified with non-interventionist methods, the result is a distinct wine that faithfully reflects what the vineyard naturally expresses.
