I racked the Showcase Chardonnay last night and it's tasting real
However there are exceptions to every rule. I have made several batches of
RJ Spagnols Gewrztraminer and found that I like it young better than
matured. Yes in smoothes out beautifully at a year but there is a
fruitiness that I love right after it finishes clearing.
Now that I have confused you, it is up to you. I would say two things
should govern your decision.
1) can you wait? If you are willing to lay this down for a while, age in
2) If it is a red, err on the side of long batch aging.
