Lo-Fi is a partnership between two lifelong friends who believe in hand crafted honest wines that are made for every day drinking. Wines to be enjoyed not to be collected. Easy drinking lower alcohol wines made to pair well with all types of foods, from pizza to paté. Neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulfur additions, and no adjustment of pH. Nothing added, nothing taken away philosophy that gives birth to wines that are young, vibrant and alive.
Lovely, balanced Chardonnay from the Santa Ynez Valley in California. The grapes are partly aged in old barrels, partly in amphora, so it's lean and layered. Lemony fresh fruit, some soft minerals, great acidity. Silky from partial malolactic fermentation. This up-ends everything you would expect from a Californian Chardonnay. A stunningly elegant wine!
