Thanks everyone. It was my oaked chard. The judges notes on the Chard were that there was not enough oak and the nose was off. I wanted it to be more buttery but probably not enough battonage with this vintage. They were correct.Congrats! Looks like your Chardonnay narrowly missed medaling. Did the notes give you ideas on what you could do to improve it?
Not to mention it's a Chardonnay, probably the most versatile wine there is.Who’s to say what’s enough oak, Frances Ford Coppola makes a great Chard, just the correct amount of wood verses fruit , not over powering to the palate.
Off taste I can see. But oaking????
