Paradise Springs of Clifton Chardonnay 2009

Member Review by ChipDWood:

Though I've yet to try it myself: Paradise Springs' 2009 Chardonnay won the very first ever Virginia Governors Cup awarded specifically to a white wine. 2010 was the first year that both a red and a white were awarded the most coveted award in Virginia for the best wine. It is news in two respects: 1) That a winery so new (one year in the works) and so far north in the Commonwealth was able to take the award. 2) That a Chardonnay beat out some very tough competition from dozens of highly respected wines made from the Viognier varietal is more news than anything.

Paradise Springs of Clifton:
The site of Paradise Springs Winery lies on 36 acres nestled in the quiet corner of Clifton, VA on the edge of Fairfax County. The property borders Hemlock Regional Park with the Bull Run River flowing only steps through the woods. Originally, the property was part of a one-thousand acre land grant from Lord Fairfax in 1716 to the family’s direct ancestors and has been passed down through the generations since. Several hundred acres still remain in the family today.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
