June 22nd Tasting – California
If less than 85% of a wine is made from grapes sourced from a single county, that wine can only carry the generic “California” label. While less prestigious than single-AVA offerings, these may actually be very good wines at quite affordable prices. In fact, a winemaker may choose to use a combination of grapes from both warm and cool counties, the former for the fruit-forward taste for which New World wines are known and the latter for balancing acidity. When we get to Australian wines later this summer, we’ll see that the Aussies have taken multi-geographical blending to new levels!
Chardonnays, as we’ve seen, can range from a crisp apple taste to round and buttery. It’s possible to strike a balance between the two, as many California winemakers are doing. A part of the wine only sees stainless steel. Another part of the blend goes through a second “malolactic fermentation,” turning tart green apple-like malic acid into lactic acid which is found in milk. Yet another part of the mixture is aged in oak. The result is a wine with both apple crispness and a full, creamy mouthfeel.
