Grgich Hills Chardonnay Miljenko's 100th Birthday 2020

Product description

The Paris Tasting Commemorative Chardonnay is a recreation of the now-famous 1973 Chardonnay crafted by Mike Grgich that beat the best French white wines in the historic Judgement of Paris. This wine has an elegant bouquet of fresh peach, key lime, and pineapple, enhanced by hints of Madagascar vanilla and caramel. Both soft and dense on the palate, it exudes juicy aromatics of green apple and fresh pineapple harmoniously balanced by crisp and refreshing acidity.

For this wine Grgich selected only the best grapes, which are primarily from their oldest block of Chardonnay, the Old Wente clone planted in 1989. Through a combination of clone, age, and cool climate, this single block in their estate vineyard in the chilly Carneros region of Napa Valley creates wonderfully rich flavors, balanced with crisp acidity. They farm all their certified organic vineyards naturally, using the principles of regenerative agriculture.
