Lafond Winery 2010 Lafond Vineyard Chardonnay wins Double Gold at San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

2010-lv-chardonnay-wgDouble Gold means that all the judges in the panel have awarded a Gold Medal to a specific wine, an infrequent occurrence.

The grapes for this wine come from one of our oldest blocks which has consistently produced our best Chardonnay.

The wine is fermented in 160 gal. puncheons, goes through malolactic (secondary) fermentation, allowed to sit on its lies (sediments), and regularly topped and stirred.

Winemaker Bruce McGuire uses a proven combination of new and old puncheons to produce a perfect complexity.
