* Gold Medal- Los Angeles County Fair * Bronze Medal- Orange County Fair Chardonnay, Paragon Vineyard is rich with layers of grapefruit, pear, apple and spice. It is a lighter style of Chardonnay then past years. Flavors are also wrapped with delightful mineral notes which are integrated with Almond, caramel, vanilla, banana, smoke, and toast. It is complex, rich, with an explosion of fruit that is extremely well balanced. It has well defined depth, silky texture, balanced acidity and a clean crisp finish. Fermentation Fermentation consisted of initial French Oak Barrel fermentation and a secondary 100% Malo-Lactic fermentation in which the harsher Malic Acid is converted to the softer Lactic Acid. Barrel Age The Chardonnay was aged in 100% French Oak from the Allier, Never and Troncais Forest for eleven (11) months. The wine was further aged for an additional 12 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attributes.
