On the nose, Bang Bang is matchbook flinty and reminiscent of salty sea air. The palate is ethereal with a kiss of citrus, a little bit of Anjou pear, and tons of minerality to round it out.
Bang Bang Chardonnay was foot-crushed whole-cluster in picking bins and allowed to macerate for a day in order to gain some texture and natural protection from the compounds in the skins. The next day the juice was pressed off to a stainless-steel tank, settled for a day and barreled down to neutral oak barrels, fermenting and aging for 8 months on the lees. Racking was done two months before bottling to allow the wine to come together in the tank.
