Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay

2021   |   Carneros, California

Product Details

white peach • citrus • toasted oak

Tasting Notes: Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay is perfumed in brioche and baked apple, with seasonings of nutmeg and vanilla. It opens in a rich, full-bodied concentration of citrus and white peach and evolves on the palate to show structure and depth. Bright acidity lifts hints of toasted oak, maintaining a fresh and plush finish. Barrel fermented for 9 months in 34% new, 33% once-filled, and 33% twice-filled French oak barrels.

Winemaker Notes: As with all our wines, we are looking for texture and complexity. To achieve this, we practice a long, cold fermentation and then put the wine through partial malolactic fermentation to soften the overall high acidity. While aging, we employ bâtonnage (hand-stirring the lees) regularly to promote depth and longevity in the wine. Sourced primarily from our estate Lewis Vineyard, as well as famed grower Andy Beckstoffer’s neighboring Carneros Lake Vineyard located in Napa-Carneros, and Sangiacomo Vineyards located in Sonoma-Carneros, among others.
