Winemaker’s Notes:
“A classically styled Chardonnay from the Edna Valley showcasing aromas of pear, white peach, pineapple and wet stone. Flavors of beautiful tropical fruit with mineral undertones and textured creaminess are balanced with refreshing acidity, a hallmark of Paragon Vineyard, that keeps the wine lively and fresh from start to finish. All topped off with the perfect complement of vanilla bean and toasted oak. Displaying aromas of pear, pineapple, tangerine and vanilla this classic Chardonnay from the Edna Valley shows flavors of tropical fruit, with a hint of minerality and a creamy texture. Refreshing acidity keeps the wine lively and fresh from start to finish, a signature of Paragon Vineyard, and is topped off with the excellent accompaniment of vanilla bean and toasted oak.”

Wine Review:
This yellow colored Chardonnay from the Edna Valley opens with a musty oak and pear bouquet with a hint of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is an oak influenced Bosc pear with notes of pineapple and Werther’s Original caramel candy. The finish is dry and its flavors stick around for quite a long time. This Chard is rich enough to be enjoyed on its own. Enjoy – Ken (SIP Certified)

    Bright pear nose; refreshing, lively, and crisp with tangy acidity and a racy finish. Lush and intense, this is a wellbalanced wine with remarkable value, especially given its complexity.

  • 90 Vinous Antonio Galloni

    “Pale yellow-gold. Ripe pear, pineapple and quince aromas are complemented by suggestions of white flowers and lemon zest. Fleshy and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a building honeysuckle nuance. Finishes with gentle grip, a touch of chalky minerality and strong, spicy persistence.” (1/2019)

    This widely available wine is a solid catch and stands out with its beautiful packaging. It offers a smoky nose that’s complemented by lemon peel and sandalwood. Oak shows prominently on the palate, where smoked peach, melon and more lemon ride a creamy texture. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) (12/2018)
