2021 Paraduxx Proprietary Napa Valley White Wine
The only winery devoted to stylish Napa Valley blends, Paraduxx offers bold and expressive wines to satisfy the modern palate. Building on the tradition of artful blending, from time to time we craft wines spotlighting different styles and varietals. This limited-production bottling balances Viognier’s floral aromatics and ripe fruit flavors with Chardonnay’s tropical richness.
Blend Composition: 65% Viognier, 35% Chardonnay
This inviting white blend displays lavish aromas of honeysuckle, pineapple, passionfruit, nectarine and lemon zest. On the palate an undercurrent of creamy richness adds length and lushness to the tropical and stone fruit flavors, while a beam of energetic acidity brings poise to lingering notes of white peach and honeycrisp apple.
The 2021 growing season started with a very dry winter, with almost no rain in the month of February. Due to the lack of moisture, there were more frost events, which when combined with an extended period of bloom led to some shatter during cluster formation, resulting in smaller overall yields. Summer brought ideal temperate weather ensuring that the grapes were able to achieve excellent ripeness. While harvest was fairly compressed, with both white and red grapes coming into the winery at the same time, the quality of the fruit was exceptional, producing a stunning vintage of beautifully concentrated wines with deep, alluring colors.
