Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2019 Paratus Chardonnay is sourced from the Mount Veeder appellation of Napa Valley and produces an elegant wine with aromas of citrus and oily minerality. The palate has rich flavors of lemon and melon which are supported by elegant minerality and lively acidity. The sur lie aging rounds out this wine, creating a broad mid palate and a smooth lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 2019 growing season had lots of rainfall with wet soils later than normal. Summer had very few extreme heat spikes coupled with foggy mornings. Long cool hang time helped to preserve freshness, finesse and acidity in the fruit.
Production Notes
The grapes were picked early in the morning and came in cold. The grapes were pressed into stainless steel barrels and cold fermented by native yeast. The fermentation took 45 days at 65 F. The wine was then aged sur lie for 3 months.
